I made another proposal  to follow the line of wallpaper Samuele
and changing the tone of color. The concept is simply a composition of
images of the statue of Constantine I  in York, England, a texture
of concrete and pieces of lithographs for Gustave Doré (of whom I
admire a lot), the concept is more than obvious that the image of
Constantine is explicit .
Samuele, great draws man!
