Bamboo Forest
Density plot: z = sin(2x)cos(x/2)+tan(x)

It took a long time to find just the right zoom on this one.

Notice the extreme scale. In the end, I went north of 10^120 before being satisfied that I'd found the best possible zoom.
Apparently, working with numbers 100 times larger than a trilliontrilliongoogle was a bit too much for the software. I broke Grapher in the process, and will have to reinstall it.
Worth it!

y = kx/3
k = 1..18

Dirtsimple linear equations. Interesting effect.

Density plot: z = sin(x)+cos(3x+y)

One problem with Grapher is that it's a bit unstable. Changing window dimensions will force a recalculation, and you end can end up with a completely different picture, unable to return to the original.
Such was the case with this relation, but I ended up with a couple of nice plots, anyway.
Eye of Red
Falling Water
HandDrawn Hilbert
Found online.

You can draw fractals by hand, if you have the patience. The Hilbert Curve above is one continuous line. (Can you find its endpoints?)
Lots of us doodle using fractal designs, for instance. (Do you?)
LaserEtched LP
Density plot: z = sin(x)^2cos(y)^2

Reminds me of the laseretched version of the True Colours LP released by New Zealander pop group Split Enz in 1980.
An awesome record, both musically and physically. When light shined on the rotating lp, the reflected laseretched designs would dance around the room.
