Linearity II

Pictured are subsequent larval stages in Physophora magnifica, a colony building jellyfish species. The glass models series as shown in the photograph is linear. My  watercolour shows an loose arrangement of the embryonic shapes. The question might be: what is organic?

Model series of the siphonophore 
Physophora magnifica
based on illustrations by  Ernst Haeckel.
Shown is the series from the collection 
of the Utrecht University Museum. 
Similar series are preserved in the 
collections of Vienna University, 
Cornell University and the 
Museum of Comparative Zoology
of Harvard University.
