      I chose it exactly because of the description: soft purple, mysterious hat, intriguing burning figure… It makes me think of an opera. As often happens, aesthetic design choices are self-explanatory. It works immediately (or not) and you know implicitly why. In that case, it was irresistible colors, the moon, a dark and sort of “tragic-comic” character in the front.
