From Far and Wide,

all the subjects of Venti├žello had heard stories about the Emperor's lavish taste in clothing.

His robes were sewn from prized fabrics, and they were adorned with sparkling jewels,

making the Emperor appear like a brilliant star.

NOTE: The building highlighted here is Venti├žello's Topolino. It is a mausoleum built for two little mice in 1993. I threw the dome on a potter's wheel, and hand sculpted the walls, piercing detail into them with tiny punch tools.
