Same. Wish it had been the larger yellow version, but my wallet thanks me and I'm glad they are putting out another print so soon after the 150.

Visions Victoire is a 16 layer hand-pulled silkscreen print inspired by one of the more recent paintings. This print brings a softer palette and new composition to a rather striking image originally created during our collaboration with the New York City Ballet. Each print is signed, stamped and embossed in the studio on a thick Coventry Rag 335 gsm with deckled edges. This one is for all the women in your life who dance with dragons on a daily basis.

Visions Victoire
Edition of 300
16 Layer Silkscreen Print
Coventry Rag 335 gsm
39 x 27.5 Inches
Singed, Stamped & Embossed

Glad it's this image and I can save a few bucks and wall space with an easy pass.

Needs more dragon.

The one pattern block on the left side of the dress distracts my eye too much.

i definitely like it "better" than the darker composition one.... but would really only BUY the yellow one with the full writing.

I realy like this new one. It is very graphic so i can see how it is jaring some. It seems to realy capture the block motifs with the larger block sizes and the more varied imagry.

The ones with only a few elements out of place are great and they look like what they are supposed to look like. i seem to find this a bit more engaging and in keeping with some of the new Paris works.

I was nervouse when the circulating pics were very monochrome. The added colors have me sold, so Im grabbing one for sure. It is big and smaller editon that some past releases so a seems like a win. Will go well with ballet or bad seed

I like the added color to the final product, but am still not completely sold on the image. Kudos to those on board with this as I'm sure it'll look good in person and be a nice complement to other Faile works. I think I'm going to be passing.
