The Mandala of Evolution

I stumbled upon this illustration when I Google searched "evolution." It's called "The Mandala of Evolution." It seems like the light in the middle is the big bang, and radiating out of it are cells and simple lifeforms. Farther away from the middle, you see more complex lifeforms radiating—some aquatic, some crawling onto land, and stretching all the way to the horizon, which is capped by the sun on top and the moon on the bottom.

I'm not sure what it's for, or who Dana Wright is, but I think it captures the diverse beauty and wonder in life really nicely. I also like that it kind of looks like something that would be on a graphic tee from the 90s that possibly (at least I would hope) glows in the dark. In other words, I would totally wear this.
