Today’s update is a bizarre piece about the Galactic Empire. Nevertheless, I hope you will like it – for me, it tells a lot about the deep feelings and motivations that keep the Empire together.
The title of the picture is Imperium Forte, latin for Mighty Empire.
Remember the words of an Imperial officer, Grand Moff Tarkin from A New Hope:
Fear will keep the local systems in line!
… and the words of a wise Jedi Master in The Phantom Menace:
Fear leads to anger, anger leads to hate, hate leads to suffering.
My new Star Wars poster is entitled Vader‘s Night. It belongs to the same series like Ben’s Sunset and shows the tormented Vader, haunted by his burning memories and the true nature of the dark side.
Darth Vader raises his aggressively glowing red lightsaber but he cannot fight the ghosts and failures of his past (from bottom left to middle left): his dying mother, the massacre of the tusken camp, the beheading of Count Dooku, the murder of the younglings in the Temple, the slaughtering of the Separatists and, most prominently, the consequent death of his beloved Padme.
Vader is the archetype of the fallen, angry, helplessly suffering hero.
More information on the story of this poster will come soon!
