Louis Louis: He’s the King

The French viewpoint of their hysteric (and historic) past is expressed in this marvelous mural of King Louis XIV, who presides over all at Versailles.  In creating the image with the use of positive and negative space, the artist has brought out the fashion “Trends” of the period:  Buckled shoes, Hose, Stylish  Complete with the Fleurs de Lis, and of course, the famous cravat.  A dashing figure all around and the backdrop of a French paneled wall to add a sense of place.  It’s Versailles, only fresh and new for the 21st Century and we couldn’t be more pleased. Ditto for the cardboard paper construction of the French lighting.
