Translates as 'binary star', here represented by two entwined nude women floating in the night sky, with others in the background. Luis Ricardo Faléro (1851 - 1896), born in Granada, Spain, settled in London in the 1880s, dying there in 1896 at the age of 45. He specialised in the female nude in a mythological or fantasy setting.
