The Birth of Venus: Princess Leia Edition

 |  |

I don’t know much about art, but I know what I like. And I like artist Travis Chapman’s take on Botticelli’s Birth of Venus painting featuring Princess Leia in her slave outfit. This original acrylic painting would look great in your man cave or geek themed room.

It is said that the original painting depicts the goddess Venus emerging from the sea as an adult woman. Does this mean that after her enslavement by Jabba, Leia is emerging more confident than ever?

I have no idea what it means, I just know it’s pretty awesome that Leia has replaced the goddess and that Han, Chewie and 3-PO are here to provide support. This classic work of art just got much better in my opinion.
