Molecular Landscapes by David S. Goodsell

Biosites: Cytoplasm, 2005

This painting includes three types of filaments that make up the cytoskeleton: a microtubule (the largest), an intermediate filament (the knobby one), and two actin filaments (the smallest ones). The large blue molecules are ribosomes, busy in their task of synthesizing proteins. The large protein at bottom center is a proteasome. This painting was created for the biotech company Biosites.
