Kira × Ziyal × art (split version; single image version here)
Two of Kira’s foils, Ziyal and Iliana, were skilled artists, a talent Kira freely admitted never having, yet she herself is a descendent of artisans. Whenever she connects with these women, when she holds their works in her hands, I have to wonder if she’s glimpsing another reality in which the Occupation never occurred, and in which she discovered and developed her own artistic voice.

I have absolutely no artistic skills. I was the worst finger painter at the four-year-old level. My parents were humiliated.
