This 15 foot by 8 foot painting by Robert Xavier Burden took 2,000 hours to make is full of ‘Star Wars’ toys as well as the influences that inspired George Lucas to make the movies. Looking more like a photoshop collage, its hard to believe that it is all hand painted. The artist even managed to paint himself into it.
The painting is chock full of ‘Star Wars’ lore containing every character from Boba Fett to Cad Baine to R2-D2 and yes even Jar-Jar Binks is in it, much to my dismay. How much would this painting cost? Well Burden wants $200,000.00 for it.
