The painting shows the detailed planet earth and its fauna surrounded by white clouds as a symbol of the world tour.
All further unique masterpieces of the limited edition will be bespoke painted. Tailored to the individual demands of the future owners.
It takes nearly six weeks handcrafting a Reposo 12 Limited 77. The very last step will be the signature of the designer, all masters and the artist.
This limited edition will be available only in the context of the handmade world tour.
