To see the worlds in a pane of glass

Chinese artist/designer/architect Jian Guo, who works primarily with sf/fantasy subjects, has been working on a series of prints of the not-too-mundane bodies of the Solar System.  Using a flat, tessellated style that resembles the pieces of stained glass used in decorative and sacred architecture, the portraits of Sun, planets, and associated friends (the Moon, the heart-struck dwarf Pluto) are surrounded by astronaut and spacecraft figures, giving us some hope that the celestial spheres will not always be alone in their revolutions.
