Artist's description:

This is a 20x20 Acrylic painting with string. It is original, one of a kind and ready to hang.
This painting is inspired by the discovery of Deoxyribonucleic acid (DNA). In April 1953, James Watson and Francis Crick published a paper presenting the double helix structure of DNA that we know today. DNA, the genetic makeup of all living things; an element of our life, has always been right in front of us but not clearly visible. Our understanding of DNA and the three-dimensional, double-helical model structure that we know today may not have been concluded by Watson and Crick if it was not for the important X-ray crystallography work by researchers Rosalind Franklin and Maurice Wilkins. This painting shines light on the idea of discovering something that is right in front of us that should have been obvious. But until we have the tools, science or “glasses,” we can’t clearly see it. (This painting is 3D, best viewed with 3D glasses.)

3D Glasses are included with the painting.

This painting comes unframed, however I paint the edges to blend in with the rest of the painting; if you would like to keep it unframed.
