Artist Jude Buffum put together this enormous piece depicting the Hyrule animal kingdom from Legend of Zelda.
I created Magna Arbor Vitae Deku (traslated “The Great Deku Tree of Life”) a sprawling exploration of the evolutionary biology of the 200 most important species from the Legend of Zelda video game series. Complete with binomial Latin names (Zora Bellator and Zora Fluvialis share a common ancestor with the more peaceful species Zora Sapien, for example), the brancehs of the Deku tree trace the evolution of each species over millions of years. Forks in the branches indicate an extinct common ancestor of the species that follow.
Now THIS is what we call nerd science. We would totally hang this picture on the wall next to this epic Zelda painting.
