This Stephen Colbert portrait was originally produced as a 23.4″ × 33.1″ poster. The art shows Stephen in traditional vestments and wearing a triple tiara, a crown worn by Popes until 1963. The brooch that fastens Stephen’s vestments is decorated with a 24K gold capital C with a huge ruby at the center. The ornamental eagles are another symbol familiar to Stephen’s fans. This is a seamless combination of painted images from 1878 with painting from 2012. Stephen’s face is a remarkable likeness, as if a 3D mask had been created for this occasion. The iris in the eyes reflects the gold in the room where Stephen sits.
