Minshull Tree of Life painting

The mural is a celebration of the diversity of species on our planet, and implies concern over the projected rate of extinctions in response to climate change. The trunk bifurcates, reflecting the processes of evolution, and references the DNA double helix. The branches are phylogenetically correct.
