I had to paint this a few months ago for my local library’s “literary garden” where we picked our favorite book and illustrated it on a 6 foot post. It took me a million hours. Not my usual thing but it’s Les Mis related so I’m posting it here. Edited together from 20 photos, but hopefully you get the idea what it would look like in 3d.
I fit as much symbolism as I could with my time limit, if that’s a thing you like.
