Statement: Where do we come from? Throughout the ages humans have addressed this fundamental mystery by applying the science of their time to the evidence available, resulting in evolving theories and explanations. We can follow the course of these origin stories in the art created to hold and share them. ?Footprint in Water? is an origin icon of sorts, reflecting our current understanding. As such it is part of this traditional union of art and science. The alien looking ?footprint? in the center of the drawing represents an ancestral amoeba vibrating with life in a the primordial sea.
