Samuel’s love for stars, symbology and trans analogies, comes full circle with this piece. In Heraldry (designs on armoury, or coat of arms) the 5 pointed star with a hole in the middle is called a "pierced mullet". Samuel has piercings and a mullet… It felt queer, and fitting!!
In cadency, (distinguishing descendants in a family coat of arms) The crescent moon, symbolises a "second son" on a family crest. Although Samuel is oldest child, he was the second to be called a son in his immediate family.
Each print is numbered and signed by Samuel.
