This picture shows the whole universe (cosmos) represented as a sky scrapper building, in the middle of the picture. Through the glass you can see the Andromeda galaxy & the heart nebula: representatives of galaxies, nebulae & star clusters – all that makes up our universe. The whole, vast cosmos is represented by that cental building, with people around it, looking at it. The purpose of the illustration is to question some of our human reactions to the universe.
I have written extensively about this scene in the BC Blog.
