Hale Bopp I

Charcoal on paper
This artwork is part of the series of works related to Calleja's childhood memories. It recalls the comet Hale Bopp which Calleja used to observe everyday with his grandfather, until the comet disappeared. It was from this period that Calleja started nourishing his interest in astronomy - an interest that he still maintains to this day.
With this work Calleja is tying up the 'Hale Bopp' works with his 'Ħarruba' series of works.
Artwork comes with a Certificate of Authenticity.
