HEAVENLY BODIES

DQtrs limited edition wall hangings began with a series titled “Heavenly Bodies” by Joseph Abbati.  In “Heavenly Bodies” NASA is playing a part in the maintenance of our gods.  Cesar Augustus was declared a god upon his death in 14BC.  We see a marble bust of him strapped in a space suit awaiting his ascension.  Apollo’s lyre is in need of repair.  From the International Space Station’s cupola we see him awaiting his upgrade.  Romans meet at the Saturn moon Enceladus.  Caligula on Mars!
