The Lost Voice of God. by When-Twelve-Dawns The Lost Voice of God. by When-Twelve-Dawns
I guess some people think that if there is any physical indication of some kind of god, that the amount of extreem structure and order in certain creatures like the nautilus (..not to mention others..) with its shell that almost perfectly matches a golden spiral.. a spiral that mirrors the fibonacci sequence.. etc.. would show indication of a designer to creation.. etc..

Well, my personal joke and mild foray into cynicism here, and its not the kind of joke i'd expect other people to laugh at.. is that the inner ear isn't perfect.. and its spiral, does not come close to being a golden spiral... ears are so easily damaged.. looks to me like a critical design flaw.. hehe.

And as you'd hold up a conch to hear the ocean.. you'd hold a nautilus to hear god.. but.. alas.. heh god's voice is lost to imperfect design.

But on a strictly visual level.. this is another anatomical drawing to be batched up with "Left" .. and would show the relations of the inner ear and the nautilus shell.

This is a slightly large drawing.. 22x30" same size as "Left" etc.

The photo is kind of funny.. you'll just have to trust me that it looks better in person.

I might toss some detail shots in scraps.

Really cool perspective man. Seems unfinished but still holds together well. I love it!

I'd just like to say I think this is lovely, interesting, and full of movement and life. It feels almost too rushed to be unreal. Very nice.

Great work. It's hard to find surreal peices here that are actually 'surreal'.

interesting parallels with all those swirls from nature, and the whole hearing theme.
