Alice in Wonderland/The Little Key



When she got to the door, she found she had forgotten the little golden key, and when she went back for it, she found she could not possibly reach it.

More variations, the last one being the most complete. If you like this sort of thing, by the way, you might want to rent Jan Svankmajer's Alice which someone has, with perverse appropriateness, paired with a Tom Waits song on youtube. An interval tomorrow for an announcement from Australia and another in my series of scary little creatures.

The image on the bottom is the one for March in the Wonderland Revisited 2010 calendar.

I found a wonderful edition of Alice in Wonderland from 1933 on Sunday at the car boot. This is the perfect companion. I do love Svankmajer and Tom Waits - so thankyou for this :)

It is amazing how you can awaken a scene to life just by putting these paper cuts into it!

It's always interesting to see what you are doing. I went back and looked at the photos after viewing the YouTube video. If you were to choose music for yours would you choose the same piece?

grrl -

No, these were taken at James' Antiques Center, where I took the photo of the winged truck.

Thank you, James.

well, I had to check out the Cottingly fairies per your last post comments. Realized I had read all about them years ago and thought it very creative on the part of the sisters.

The last one with many figurines is surreal. Light from the window + Alice's shadow adds to the appeal.

Yup, the mannequin-good God, how do you spell it?-in the foreground makes it for me. Beautiful.

I love the mannequin head. I was thinking what it reminded me of and finally the Beatles' animated film YELLOW SUBMARINE came to mind. Did that influence you? John Lennon was a big fan of Lewis Carroll.
