This is my painting of Barack Obama, that I have manipulated with photoshop and converted it to a world map. Because the painting refers to president's Birth Stars, and as a world leader who makes a lot for the peace of this planet, I think he could be connected with the world map.
The Painting is made according to Astronomy Maps.
Each pebble resemles a Planet, Galaxy or Star
Studying the astronomical charts I found stars and places of planets that I would say characterize his personality.
The star that is in the centre of the painting is the star that rose in the horizon of Honolulu in Hawaii (his birthplace) on 4th August 1961 and hour 19.24 p.m. The work is inspired from pebbles that I have found in the birthplace of the Goddess Aphrodite. All stars and planets are represented in this way.
These pebbles have been "painted" by nature and their forms are like a microcosm. Because we do not know exactly how these distant stars look they are represented with these pebbles. I believe that it is an effort to reach them with the imagination and to learn this distant worlds.
The combination of these stars with the places of planets in the painting I believe gives a sample of the uniqueness of Mr Barack Obama like of course each person in general.
More details about President's Stars are in my website:
