The Astronomer is inspired by those great satellite dishes that peer up into the night sky searching. Searching the universe of stars and planets and black holes and nebulas and all that we are yet to discover. 

I have given this satellite dish a playful human slant, so the dish looks like a giant Astronomer looking upwards, on the organic body of the earth. It is us, collectively, gazing into the Universe, humbly searching where we belong.
