elemental tile for moscovium made by digitally highlighting the outline St. Basil's Cathedral in MoscowMoscovium is a radioactive element on the periodic table located in group 15. It was first synthesized in 2003 in a research facility found in Dubna, Russia. For my design, I have taken St. Basil's Cathedral in Moscow, one of the most iconic monuments in Russia, to represent the country. What appears to be fireworks in the night sky is the Bohr–Rutherford diagram of the element. The whole image is supposed to represent the celebration of the element’s new name in Moscow.
