Wonderland: Quadrille

“For their part the crew, who relished the prestige of serving in the Shtandart, loved the four sisters, and found them enchanting.”

(Rappaport, H. 2009 p. 92)

This image is a continuation of the previous scene, this time focusing on the Lobster Quadrille that the Gryphon and Mock Turtle inform Alice of before taking part in it themselves. This scene also continues the previous ideas behind the imagery, the relationships between the Romanov children and their tutors and the sailors aboard the Shtandart.
