Entry Description

This black version of the 'Royal Star' is from Part II of an extensive personal production - 'The Versailles Project'. Part II can be described as the creation of a celestial environment composed exclusively of abstractions of water, light and fire. Royal Star 3 alludes specifically to the passing of The Sun King, and more generally to a partial transition from light to darkness, where light prevails.
