Moon cavalier
© Yoshitaka Amano

1000: Moon cavalier (Amano)

Classic Amano gothic - swirling lines, and a slightly mysterious composition. If this is a cavalier, where is his horse? And are we on the moon? The first word in the original title, Gekkû no kishi, is made-up: "moon-sky". What does it mean? ...Ah! Could that be the moon in the background? Surely it is.

Anyway, there is plenty of black for people who don't like their puzzles too easy!


Born in Shizuoka in 1952, Amano began his artistic career early, joining an anime production company while still only 15. He is probably best known for his creation of the characters in the Final Fantasy video game series, but has worked in a wide range of artistic styles. He currently lives in New York

Note that Amano is his family name, so he is not following the Japanese artist's tradition of going by his given name.
