Part of the Gower memorial, situated in Bancroft gardens, Stratford upon Avon. The memorial was presented to the town of Stratford in 1888 by Lord Ronald Sutherland Gower. The memorial features William Shakespeare seated at the acme overlooking figures of his literary characters featured in some of his plays: Prince Hal, Lady McBeth, Prince Hamlet and Falstaff - representing Philosophy, Tragedy, History and Comedy. The figure featured here is Prince Hamlet, holding the skull of Yorick.

Thanks for all the C&Cs on 'Door to Door'.

Best wishes,
Philip

I like your treatment of this guy, Philip. Lady McBeth looks quite sinister I seem to remember!

Think this is excellent Philip, your processing has worked really well giving this a sort of Shakespearian moody feel.
