Syngamy, 1983

This large painting shows the meeting of the gametes within the fertile ovum. It is based on electron micrographs, but the artist has contributed light, color and space to the arrangement. At this moment of high drama -- the essence of sex -- the male and female gametes are indistinguishable.
