The onomatopoetic 'explosion' star. We encouter it in isolated form (in sculpture), as contextual placement (in painting and poetry), as well as random object (in fashion) - which, in turn, would lead us to a loss of meaning through its recycling in fashion and therefore speak for a reduced cultural value of the latter.
