Darwin2009: Spiral of Life Mural Series


We created a new, updated image for evolution that emphasizes the common origin and equality of all livings things, includes a diverse look at the biosphere and an updated look at current research and emerging themes. A series of murals and one stuffed diagram were created based on this new symbol to tell the story of evolution at five Pittsburgh museums.
