  A human clone may have the same DNA genome as another, but would be a unique individual with a unique personality and soul. When attempting in vitro fertilization, there is a low rate of successful implantation. To increase the likelihood of successful implantation and eventually the birth of a baby, frequently several embryos are placed in the woman at once. Consequently, there is also a risk of several embryos successfully implanting. When reproductive cloning is done, it is likely several cloned embryos will be implanted in the woman at once. It is possible that more than one clone will be born. This painting, Unique Clones, show several developling cloned embryos, all growing at different rates, each having identical DNA yet still having unique characteristics determined by their environment.
