Although designed to represent a Native American dreamcatcher in a commercialized world, this piece of art may also be considered as a representation of the surface of a cratered planetary body. Since the Universe contains 100 billion galaxies, each has the same number of stars, and probably most of them have at least one rocky planet, this same pattern of craters and linear forms must match the surface relief of at least one of them.

So we can safely say that this is the actual map of a planet or moon somewhere out there in the universe.
