Beautiful. How did you make this if you're alright with telling (what materials and techniques did you use)?

What do the letters around the sun say? (and if possible, English or Spanish translation)

I think the "soleil noir" is a bit off-center to the left.

The black sun really makes for a powerful effect.

Great work :) Very inspiring too, makes me want to keep working!

Thanks for your comment. :)
I simply made this one with black paper and white gouache. What's written in the sun is an extract from "El Destichado", a French poem by Gérard de Nerval. In spite of the Spanish title, I don't know if there's any English or Spanish translation available somewhere.
