Bothan Beauty was a painting created by the legendary artist Bahzel. It was a particularly well known work, and copies of it were available in the galaxy at some point after the Battle of Yavin during the Galactic Civil War. The painting depicted a brown-furred Bothan female gazing from the left side of the work to the right. Behind her was a background of brown that faded into blue as it moved from the left to the right. A lighter-hued watermark in the shape of a rounded-off sunburst was superimposed over the image. Overall, the work's style was similar to that of Bothan Buff, another painting created by Bahzel.[1]

Behind the scenesEdit


Early concept art for a female Bothan, similar to the one used in the painting

Bothan Beauty is a painting that appears in the 2003 video game Star Wars Galaxies developed by Sony Online Entertainment. It can be used in the player character's personal home as decoration. It was added to the game in the Hotfix 17.10 game update on October 7, 2010 as part of the "rare loot system," which allows players to obtain exceedingly rare items as loot from any enemy in the game.[1]

The artwork for the painting had existed in the game's files for some time before this, however, and was an edited version of the female Bothan concept art for the game.[2][3]
