Tove Jansson's »Alice« pics: The King Judging (p. 107)


Vignette to chapter 11 "Who stole the tarts?"

The King is sitting judgment, looking much more imposing than he does in the text. Somehow he resembles a famous statue of Gustav Vasa, or Gustavus I, at Nordiska Muséet in Stockholm.

Update 2004-05-31: The resemblance to a extern medieval game of chess from the Isle of Lewis is even bigger!

I kindly ask you to read everything on the Title Page of this picture collection carefully.
