Possible Interpretations (Leave your own thoughts below)
This artwork shows the birth cycle and evolution of the Alien race from the famous movie Aliens. The flow of the diagram should be viewed top to bottom with the starting cycle a egg laid by a Queen. The next stage depicts when the Facehugger stage is created after the egg hatches and the Facehugger plants the next cycle of eggs into its victim. The finial stage, the Chestbuster, shows the Alien exploding from the victims chest when the eggs mature and the resulting Alien escapes to grow into adulthood.
