Eagle Nebula (M16) Gaseous Pillars, Star-Birth Clouds, HST - WFPC2. 
Embryonic Stars Emerge From Interstellar "EGGS"
Eerie, dramatic new pictures from NASA's Hubble Space Telescope show newborn stars emerging from "eggs" -- not the barnyard variety -- but
rather dense, compact pockets of interstellar gas called evaporating gaseous globules (EGGs). Hubble found the "EGGs," appropriately enough, in the Eagle nebula, a nearby star-forming region 7,000 light-years away in the constellation Serpens.

Shiva - Lord of the Dance 
of the creation and destruction of the universe.

"In the symbolism of Shiva's Cosmic Dance is hidden a deep understanding of how our universe works, from the tiny atom to inconceivable immense intergalactic spaces. Shiva's unending dance of creation, preservation and destruction is art, science and religion merged as one. When we behold His dance, the world is seen as it truly is - sacred. Every happening within it is His divine will."

From "Shiva's Cosmic Dance: An Introduction to the World's Most Ancient Religion, Saivite Hinduism."
