The Throne of All Thrones

I was on the Red Line CTA train earlier this afternoon on my way downtown to work when I came across this spectacle. There was a woman sitting down in this seat, and she was blocking the upper-half of the design so it wasn’t noticeable at first.

But I noticed the legs at first glance and immediately thought it was some sort of strange graffiti art. When she got up from the seat, I noticed this “throne of all thrones” in all its glory, and I thought it was the funniest thing in the world. Who would think to make this sort of artwork? It’s amazingly realistic, and the shades of blue and gold match the actual seat on the CTA marvelously. Maybe it was a tactic to make whoever sits in it feel important, as if they were the king or queen of the train, or maybe it was just for impact or dramatic affect. Who knows?
