For the artist's description and comments, scroll down.

A sequence of steadily-smaller circles is placed within the drawing, such that each new circle goes into one of the interstitial places between previous circles.  If you place a rod in each circular region this is what you see, which tends to carry the expression of "bang" or "explosion". Unlike the usual cartoonist drawing of an explosion, which occurs at one place, this one shows "explosion everywhere". Is this what the original Big Bang looked like? Now two blue rods are quite the same color.

The original has about 16000 rods, all fully resolved. This image has been compressed for internet use and the resolution is much less.
