So lovely. Beautiful artwork.
It is a different kind of image – I like it too!
It must be an American baby. We like to eat.
It is a big weirdo baby – but don’t tell anyone I said so!
There is a look of weirdness in his eyes, but I didn’t want to say. You know how protective people are over babies. I don’t think I’d like those fairies hovering around either–unless they were going to give my baby some gold that I could “manage” until their eighteenth birthday.
We can talk trash about fairy tale babies – this is permitted!
This is a lot like European religious iconography. It’s a very curious picture.
It is an odd one (among the others in this book). A different look to these pictures.
Mmmm…it’s hard to say. I think I will opt for very tiny fairies.
