May 3rd. Edited to say:
This deviation has been restored today after a DA bug resulted in it being deleted from my gallery four days ago. Some odd things seem to have happened as a result of this, though; I lost all favourites and the image has also totally vanished from all the group galleries I submitted it to (though they are all still listed on the right here).
This whole business has been rather a nuisance but I'm told the bug has been fixed now so I hope that's the end of it now.
So if anyone finds themselves wondering why this is not in their faves or in a group gallery when it should be, this is the reason why.
Created with Ultra Fractal 5.04 using 33 layers and masks. Full size view is recommended, for the details.
Title comes from the word Phoenicia which means purple-red, and refers to the purple industry (the dye extracted from shell-fish and used to colour cloth) of the early Lebanese.

Thanks in advance for any s!
