# Evolution cannot explain artistic beauty, such as brilliant autumn foliage and the staggering array of beautiful marine fish, which originated before any human to view them. "[[Natural selection]] has no reason to produce beauty," Ann Gauger says in ''Metamorphosis'' about a principle that applies to flowers as well as butterflies. "Beauty is a sign of the transcendent. It's purely gratuitous. We all recognize it. We just have to acknowledge what it points to."<ref>[http://www.evolutionnews.org/2016/03/baroque_botany102711.html Baroque Botany: Elaborate but Functional]</ref> See: [[Argument from beauty]].
