The helix held special significance in Heroes. From its obvious association with DNA to widely circulated reports of Heroes writer Aron Coleite explaining that it is a combination of Kanji characters meaning “God sending great ability,” the helix shape appears throughout the series – from the tattoo on Nikki/Jessica’s back to a sword in the episode “Godsend.” It also appears in paintings in Isaac Mendez’s studio, including the “Red Helix” painting (pictured above) that is currently on the auction block at VIP Fan Auctions. Originally painted by Heroes production artist Lisa Winick, this amazing piece is a photo reproduction of the original painting mounted on canvas.
