Alice and the Two Queens

Here Alice serves as a comfortable pillow for the two queens. The conclusion of Through The Looking glass tomorrow.

... not feeling too comfortable herself, though (she reminds me of a young friend of mine who looks like that when it dawns to her I guess that life might be a long + confusing mess...)

ger - Yes, I think that realization is what the illustration is about.

Love this. Always felt as a little girl I had to decide which one I liked the best, "Looking Glass" or "Wonderland". I still feel that way sometimes though I realize they are all one which is why I continually confuse the sequence of events between the two. I love the queens.

Susan, have you ever seen the movie from the 1930s? I've probably brought this up before. Edna Mae Oliver played the Red Queen. There's a great visual of the baby that turns into the pig in that. Gary Cooper is the knight who doesn't know where he's going. W.C. Field is Humpty Dumpty (as I recall--it's been years since this was on tv).

...and yet still a queen herself... is that some sort of sceptre she's holding?

Steve - Yes, this is after she has made it across the board and been crowned.
