Celebration of Naboo
Youth on Freedom Day
Oil on linen, 44" x 52"
Collection of George Lucas
“After victory was won the entire city of Naboo celebrates with all
fanfare. The youth of the city-state along with the gungans are jubilant
at the prospects of a new world of hope peace and freedom in Naboo.
Banners and drums and the sounds of trumpets fill the air with shouts
of unity and peace throughout the empire. Children are seen laughing
waving streamers and looking ahead to a bright new future. The scene
depicted shows a joyous procession spreading out to all corners of
Naboo.” -- Allan R. Banks
