“Fear is the path to the Dark side.”
There’s a new Star Wars art piece that’s challenging Darth Vader’s ability to intimidate the galaxy.
Artist Greg Dietzenbach created a sculpture called Stormtrumper to pay tribute to both Donald Trump and Star Wars. Dietzenbach even quoted (rather appropriately) Jedi Master Yoda while posting photos of Stormtrumper on Twitter and his personal blog on Wednesday: "Fear is the path to the dark side. Fear leads to anger. Anger leads to hate. Hate leads to suffering."
Take a look at Stormtrumper:
Dietzenbach crafted Trump’s head using a Stormtrooper helmet that the artist bought from a craft store. He then used air-dry clay to form the features on Trump's face as well as his mane, using puckering images for his lips. The color of Stormtrumper’s was made orange to make the sculpture more life-like, which I personally think makes it look creepier.
It’s interesting and at the same time fitting that Dietzenbach used Star Wars for the political art piece about the politician. In the movies, specifically Star Wars: Episode II – Attack of the Clones, Emperor Palpatine knew how to manipulate the stormtrooper clones to obey his every bidding.
