Artist Narcissus Quagliata was given the commission to execute the 170 foot exterior mural for the Discovery Communications Headquarters Building.  A vibrant silkscreen on enamel overlaying steel, the mural is a highly figurative, monumental work that invites the viewer to reflect the variety of its forms, the history of our very planet, and on the uniqueness of life itself.

Commissioned by Discovery Communications in 2002.
