Queen Amidala – Star Wars

Although I have never seen a Star Wars movie, I did recognize this fence mural as from the franchise.

So, I sent a pic to my main pal from this universe – Tyeth – For Tyeth Saber Site

Tyeth – “Oh wow! That is unreal! I think the artist has used the colour palette used on the Phantom Menace cover art for the Blu-Ray edition boxes (which is a blueish-purple). It gives this mural a real powerful feel to it, especially having Darth Vader on the left and Master Yoda opposite him.”

Tyeth – “That is Queen Amidala in the centre, during the time when she was presiding on the throne. This is her wearing one of her ceremonial outfits (based on real life Mongolian fashion) and headgear.”

Tyeth – “Her makeup is very symbolic and the mark on her lower lip (which when viewed in normal colours is red) represents the blood and people of Naboo that were lost in the planet’s first war many centuries before.”

Tyeth – “Queen Amidala was the youngest ever queen to be crowned at only 15 years of age – it was a Naboo tradition to coronate young rulers as they tended to be less jaded and cynical”.

Tyeth – “In the movie (Phantom Menace) Queen Amidala also known as Padme was played by two actresses: Natalie Portman and by Keira Knightley, who acted as a decoy in some scenes. In real life the two actresses looked so alike their own mothers mistook them for each other!”

Tyeth –Why can’t I find awesome art like this in my neighbourhood?”🤔

I don’t know. It’s paint on a fence, in an alley.

Also giving a shout out to Ford – The Vintage Toy Advertiser  He is the 2nd most Star Wars fan I know.

The art is unsigned, as far as I can see. Love to know who did this!
