™ and © Heavy Metal

Spanish artist Luis Royo is probably best known (or recognized) for his painted art of beautiful women that often graces the cover of Heavy Metal. Perhaps that was what the owner of a castle in Moscow was thinking of when he commissioned Royo to paint 45 life-sized women on the interior of a domed ceiling. This book presents the gorgeous, erotic images that resulted, of mostly nude women frolicking, bathing, and embracing each other.

This hardbound edition is accompanied by text detailing the massive project, which Royo and his son, Romulo, completed. Photos showing the finished dome and the work as it moved forward through each stage give a remarkable sense of the skill involved in the project.
