Art project in refinement for more than a decade. Finally finished only in recent years when physics and astronomy made the outermost levels possible. Numbers represent very approximate meters across of main object in image using scientific notation where E denotes power of ten. These are reduced versions; contact me for inquiries about wall sized printed reproduction custom made for your location.
