Star Wars Version of Le Déjeuner Sur L'Herb

"Le Déjeuner Sur L'Herbe" ("Luncheon on the Grass") was a major work by French Impressionist Édouard Manet, executed in 1862-3 and exhibited at the Salon in the latter year. It is presently at the Musée d'Orsay in Paris. Pictured below is the original, and above, a Star Wars version by cartoonist Philip Bond.

It is to my constant fascination how Star Wars remains such a culturally relevant touchstone after so many years. Nice find.
