In the small Sakura gallery, hidden amongst the narrow streets of Paris' Marais district, you'll find more than a few famous faces. Darth Vader on the toilet with magazine in hand, C3PO posing for a Shakespearean portrait, Yoda donning a pair of angel's wings; the bizarre list goes on. They are part of the gallery's latest exhibition, which has brought together 150 works of art from internationally recognised artists, all inspired by George Lucas's Star Wars saga.

Due to run until January 15, the exhibition includes everything from ornate sculptures and perfectly created replicas, to manipulated photographs and Lego figurines. Sure to delight even the most fleeting of Star Wars fans, the works above are just a taster of the madness you'll find inside.

All works available for purchase through galerie-sakura.com.
