K

Is for kings. Who give away expensive books.

I used silk for the laid and couched work, because a king wouldn’t wear wool. There is a document showing many Saxon kings holding up the great churches they have built, and I used that for inspiration, but obviously he is holding up the g in king.

If you want to you can interpret that as a metaphor of some sort, perhaps for his support for the institution of monarchy, but I’m not that clever and I just thought it made a nice composition.

  1. He looks very fine and authoritative, which would be a necessary skill for a Saxon king, I think!
