Investing In The Arts

I have recently made an acquisition for my art collection.  A print of an amazing photograph from +Ang Cheng Ann aka ZekeZachZoom.  Here it is hanging up on my studio wall:

The moment I saw this image I fell in love with it.  It works on so many levels. 

First of all it is the classic riff on the "Alas, poor Yorick"  scene from Hamlet. 

Second this is a scene that could have actually happened when Darth Vader was on Cloud City over Bespin... and C3P0 was conveniently dismantled at the same time.  So it is not a stretch to think they would have been in the same room at the same time.

Finally Anakin, who would become Darth Vader, created C3P0, which means the next line in the play "I knew him, Horatio" is a totally legit thing to have been said (assuming one of the Storm Troopers was named Horatio, which granted is a stretch, but this is fiction about galactic empires and space wizards, so why not have a Stormtrooper named Horatio?  We have one named Finn after all.)

It now sits proudly in my studio.    If you want your own +Ang Cheng Ann print, check out his store:
