The Sophia’s Portrait is a replica of the same one in the game that Lacan painted. Xenogears character designer Kunihiko Tanakata says that while it is a replica, it is practically the real thing, with a price that reflects its exceptional attention to detail. It is dedicated to those who continue to cherish this painting, as one end to Xenogears, to a new beginning.
