The Burning World: a map

February 4, 2011


I’ve got a new print on the site called “The Burning World”. It’s based on a graphic device called a radial tree of life, which is a method of depicting the incredible diversity of life on Earth and the ways in which those life-forms are related, and when they diverged from each other. Here’s the tree of life with it’s radii labeled. You can click on the image for a larger version.

Wow, great image and great print of the burning bush. I am doing an art project in our local high school exploring the origins of life through printmaking and relating the story of evolution to how we understand ourselves in community. I would like to use this image to inspire and express the concept of Common Descent. Our concept of ancestor can and should include all of life. That’s all. Have a great day.
