A graphics-state object.
make-graphics-state creates a graphics-state object. Each graphics port has a graphics state associated with it, but you may want to create your own individual graphics states for use in specialized drawing operations. Graphics state objects do not consume local resources beyond dynamic memory for the structure (so you can be relaxed about creating them in some number if you really need to).
