This one is pure Uranus! (Click on image for larger version)

It hangs in our covered-in back porch room, in full view through glass doors, as I type. It doesn't really blend in anywhere in the house, yet I couldn't resist it when I saw it at an art festival in a nearby town. I regret that I've lost the name of the person whose work it is. He specialises in these black and white, intricate illustrations.

For some reason, possibly the shape of the spaceman's nose(?), and all the tubes and twiddly bits, it brought to mind that famous carved slab found at the ancient Mayan site in Palenque, Mexico. Some folk fancifully say that this depicts an ancient space traveller.

And a music video to accompany it! Oooooooh!!!
