Melencolia/ true colours

armes fausses (false arms) or armes à enquérir (arms of enquiry)

Melencolia coloured in retrospectively according to the heraldic convention of hatching. The noonday demon has goldfinch plumage and the dog looks like the now extinct thylacine.

But deep down this eternity of man through the stars is melancholy, and sadder still this sequestration of brother-worlds through the barrier of space. 
Louis Auguste Blanqui, L'éternité par les astres.
