"The most beautiful experience we can have is the mysterious. It is the fundamental emotion that stands at the cradle of true art and true science. Whoever does not know it and can no longer wonder, no longer marvel, is as good as dead, and his eyes are dimmed. It was the experience of mystery - even if mixed with fear - that engendered religion. A knowledge of the existence of something we cannot penetrate, our perceptions of the profoundest reason and the most radiant beauty, which only in their most primitive forms are accessible to our minds: it is this knowledge and this emotion that constitute true religiosity. In this sense, and only this sense, I am a deeply religious man... I am satisfied with the mystery of life's eternity and with a knowledge, a sense, of the marvelous structure of reality, as well as the humble attempt to understand even a tiny portion of the reason that manifests itself in nature."
-Albert Einstein, The World As I See It

Is it seriously a real-life work?
Apologies for being a bit ignorant, was this taken with a good camera and then submitted? I assumed it was a well made digital work that used sophisticated brush tools.
