Ernesto Romano is an Italian artist living and working in London. His work explores the truths hidden in human experience by dissecting what lies behind the image or the bodily surface, often by using embellished x-rays to juxtapose the jewels and bones of life.

Royal Blood is part of Romano’s project dedicated to the Queen for Art Below’s Queen Elizabeth-themed exhibition. The royal crown in shown in the classic side view, atop the x-rayed image of the queen. Both crown and necklace are embellished with gold glitter.

Romano reflects on the true nature of what lies beneath the symbol. That when stripped of our adornments, we all look the same underneath.
