Où l'étoile a pleuré...

A project of illustration of the Arthur Rimbaud's poem "L'étoile a pleuré rose" in wich the Man gets lost by confronting a feminine figure. So I highlight the obscurantism who was present during the first civilisations. The journey of two men, witnessing the majesty and the smashing power of the Mother Earth among the lands of the old State-cities of Near East.


L’étoile a pleuré rose au cœur de tes oreilles,
L’infini roulé blanc de ta nuque à tes reins
La mer a perlé rousse à tes mammes vermeilles
Et l’Homme saigné noir à ton flanc souverain.

Arthur Rimbaud, 1871
