How about a little science and naturalism with your art today?  Ernst Haeckel was a German biologist and philosopher who made a series of plates and lithiographs called Artforms of nature (or Kunstformen der Natur), which are quite stunning in their intricacy.  Sadly, Haeckel is most famous (outside the scientific circle) for providing justification for a goodly chunk of the Nazi Party’s actions regarding race and Darwinism.
