Artist's Description

This allegorical space painting, was inspired by Dr Carl Sagan, American Astrophysicist and his 1980’s television series Cosmos: A Personal Journey. The title comes from The Moody Blues second album of the same name recorded in 1967. The scene is set against the background of the spectacular Andromeda spiral galaxy (220,000 light years in diameter and 12.5 billion years old) recently captured by the Hubble deep field telescope. The rock formations in the foreground are the soft and sculpted red desert sandstone from the Triassic period. In the right foreground, to represent life on earth, a lizard searches visibly for movement in the desert which could mean food and therefore survival. With its head tilted it appears to gaze at the spiral galaxy knowingly. The light we see from Andromeda today started out 2.5 million years ago when Homo Habilis, one of our earliest ancestors, roamed the earth. Andromeda galaxy is drifting towards our own Milky
