Oh my stars! I have never seen color the likes of these lithographs by the late, Ernst Haeckel, (philosopher, professor, physician, naturalist, biologist and artist) who created this series of work for his book, Art Forms in Nature in 1899. There is a fantastic brief history of his life and work at Scienceray.com. (via NotCot).
