Taking inspiration from Johannes Vermeer's Girl with a Pearl Earring, artist Clint Wilson reimagined the eminent painting with Princess Zelda replacing the woman, and lurking creeps and Link's silhouette in the background.
The Triforce over the Hylian's head cover is a bit much, and the earring looks tacky, like something a 'tween would buy at Claire's, but other than those quibbles, it's a neat homage!
The art is available as 24×32 4-color silkscreen prints through online shop Nakatomi, though Wilson only produced 100 signed and numbered copies. There is also a "Gold Cartridge Variant" using all gold metallic ink - only 30 copies of this.
