SolarEclipseEarth, a Houston, Texas-based art workshop has released unparalleled solar eclipse imagery commemorating the Path of Totality – the passing of the Moon’s inner shadow as it sweeps over the Earth on August 21, 2017. The artist Santosh Varughese depicts the Moon passing between the Earth and the Sun, instead of a crescent Moon and full Sun, implying the sun passes between Earth and the Moon.

Just released, these unique artworks are significant in that Santosh Varughese believes that misinterpreted visual recreations of solar eclipses exist, and have done so for hundreds of years. Wishing to depict the eclipse as it happens, Varughese’s series of images show the relationship between the Moon, Earth and Sun as it happens.
Varughese’s series consists of 16 new solar eclipse designs that recreate the event in imagery. These unique designs, imprinted onto t-shirts, mugs totes and bags, are colourful, creative and true to life. Each design, named after a couple such as Romeo and Juliet, Anthony and Cleopatra or Bonnie and Clyde, relates the celestial courtship between the Sun and Moon.
As original artworks, Varughese, a romantic, establishes the connection between the Sun and Moon as a divine dance. Captured on high-quality and durable materials, this symbolic gesture is long-lasting and easily kept. All items allow the event to live on as a beautiful memory.
The Path of Totality, as a natural phenomenon, will attract millions of viewers from around the world. Best seen in the United States – North and South Carolina, Georgia, Idaho, Illinois, Kansas, Kentucky, Missouri, Nebraska, Oregon, Tennessee and Wyoming.

When asked about the artwork produced by Solar Eclipse Earth, a spokesperson for the company said, “Santosh Varughese’s artwork accurately represents the positioning of the Sun and Moon during the solar eclipse. He feels this is significant because earlier imagery misrepresents the passing.”
