The ICFP programming contest in year 2000 was to write a ray tracer  
for a given declarative 3D scene construction language (CSG -  
constructive solid geometry).  A team from Galois wrote a decent entry  
in Haskell, which did not win (those were the glory days of O'Caml),  
but it was placed in the top three.  I believe with some careful  
googling, you should still be able to find a copy of the source code.

I'm sure that if someone were to return to the idea now, the DSL for  
CSG could be improved in many ways, since the original language was  
simply given in the contest description, and there was no point in  
altering it.
