Colorful painting of a galaxy with interlocking strands of DNA passing through the "eye" of the galaxy, that can be viewed from any angle for the same effect

With interlocking strands of DNA passing through the "eye" of the galaxy, I planned this one so that it can be viewed from any angle for the same effect. In many indigenous ceremonies the serpent is not necessarily viewed as evil or threatening and often visits as an empowering spirit, benevolent with gifts of intelligence and visions, so it seemed totally natural to me to finish the DNA strands with these spirits
