The counterfeit presentment of two brothers.
See what a grace was seated on this brow...
Here is your husband like a mildewed ear..."
- Hamlet, Act III, Scene IV
It has always seemed to me an awkward stage direction that Hamlet, having just slaughtered Polonius, pulls out two portraits, those of his uncle and father (Okay, so maybe he shoves Gertrude toward them and they are hanging on the wall) . He then proceeds to point out how much better-looking his Dad was than his uncle. So I think I have to do this. I have wired the 19th century photos to my Hamlet figure, then I will have to photograph it turned over to get two oval portrait areas and insert the above likenesses. Have made a lot of progress on the Hamlet, still hoping to find a store that still sells walnuts in the shell for THAT verse. Wish me luck!
