Kepler and Brahe are drypoint printed intaglio with a piece of PVC coated foam core as the matrix (Sintra brand names). They are collaged onto a blue monotype. Some handwork accents added (gouache and pen and ink), with trace monotype added as a finishing touch on Brahe shirt. Silver leaf was added to show the planetary motion diagram, plus Brahe's prosthetic nose--the real one was lost in a duel.
