Ceramic altered storybook whimsical sculpture of Lewis Carroll’s” Alice in Wonderland”.
I decided to alter the storyline just a bit -“Sorry” for this whimsical sculpture.
“Thinking of Alice”
The Queen, in my interpretation, is pretty and wholesome with her arms supporting her ample bosoms.
She is wearing a gold crown with added real fresh-water pearls.
“Alice” is very tiny after drinking one of two vessels containing a concoction in a cup saying *Drink Me*.
1st made her into a giant with her body scrunched inside what now was a small space!
Quickly drinks the second potion and thankfully shrinks immediately.
Now it is possible and can easily pass through the doors in front of her.
Arriving at the entrance to “Wonderland” at the end of the passage.
Behind her playing card fly around.
Expressing fear of the unknown, feeling pensive after seeing the strange land before her.
Her Majesty has been informed and heard rumours about Alice’s arrival.
Thinks Her Royal Highness “when is this person, this stranger “Alice” coming to be presented to her.
After all, she is the Queen!
In Celebration of Lewis Carroll who’s loved stories have lasted the ages of time.
26 Nov 2015 was the 150th Anniversary of Lewis Carroll’s literature.
By making these sculptures, it was my way of keeping his fictional/fantasy characters alive.
Also as a thank you to a very talented writer for enriching our lives.
A friend of Lewis Carroll had a love for white rabbits.
