This cute comic is an excellent illustration of how, in many ways, we can only create and write about what we know.
The senses (and limitations thereof), education, life experiences, cultural lenses, worldviews… all of these impact what ideas we get and what and how we create.
In many ways, our aggregate art galleries and favorites reflect who we, how we see the world, and what our values are.
This bottom illustration is how different beings see this particular flower, through different wavelengths in the electromagnetic spectrum. Some fans theorize Wraith and/or hiveship sensor clusters can also see ultraviolet and/or infrared light. I like what the source article says, that the world was not created solely for the benefit or enjoyment of humans and humans need special cameras to see details other beings see naturally. Who knows what has yet to be discovered? If I were a Wraith kid and could see infrared light, I would so paint top-secret messages to friends in heat-sensitive paint, which would look monochromatic until the recipient heated the image to a pre-agreed, specified temperature to reveal the hidden image or message.
