Hopefully some museum will recognize the value of the Coruscant Tapestry and will buy it from Gallery1988. The Los Angeles-based pop culture art gallery is currently displaying Aled Lewis' amazing work of art and has it listed for sale at a cool $20,000. The tapestry measures 30 feet long and 13 inches tall, and it recounts the entire Star Wars film saga.

What makes the Coruscant Tapestry even nerdier is the fact that the action is transcribed in Aurebesh, a language unique to the Star Wars universe. Lewis was inspired by the Bayeux Tapestry, an iconic work of medieval art that chronicled the Norman conquest of England in 1066. While $20,000 may seem like a lot to pay for a work of Star Wars art, you have to take into account the uniqueness of this piece and the fact that Lewis created the whole thing by hand. It's worth every penny.
