God, Art, and Science meet and embrace in "The Tree of Man's Life" by John Goddard.  In this engraving, Goddard exemplifies the life of a mean: his birth, education, family, marriage, work, sickness, and death using illustrations and Holy Bible scriptures.  A man's life, like a tree, growing.  Yet in this double helix trunk of the tree can be seen a visual representation of the DNA. The branches and the trunks decoding the information in our genes.  It is a brilliant and prophetic work of art.
