☼-The Golden Eye of Phaëthon

“The golden eye of Phaëthon”

This picture took about 3 days to do and is on A3 paper. Dimensions of artwork are 309mm X 191mm. It is a tribute to the 10 shooting stars I saw whilst drawing it! All part of the annual Geminids meteor shower which originates from an asteroid called “3200 Phaethon“.

The name “Phaethon” means “Shining One” and in myth was the Son of the Solar diety Helios.

“The Golden” in the title refers to the golden ratio used in the artwork.
