Title:
The Tree of Vision

Author:
Maria Madeira

Description:
The Tree of Life is a metaphor used to describe the relationships between organisms, both living and extinct, as described in a famous passage in Charles Darwin's On the Origin of Species (1859). This image presents our new conception, the Tree of Vision, formed by the retina and optic nerve, as a form of connection between the brain and the world through its branches and roots.
