Galileo

Who put the stars up in the sky? That’s from a song by Josh Groban, singing about Galileo falling in love and wondering where things and people of beauty come from. Who made someone so divine, who made the stars to shine. This song inspired me to make my own Galileo, old now, but still searching for answers to the question.
