Description

From my Portraits from Wonderland Series

“Once,” said the Mock Turtle at last, with a deep sigh, “I was a real Turtle….” — from “Alice in Wonderland,” Chapter 9
 
“Mock turtle soup is an imitation of green turtle soup, usually made from veal. This explains why Tenniel drew his Mock Turtle with the head, hind hoofs, and tail of a calf.” — from “The Annotated Alice” by Lewis Carroll, notes from Martin Gardner
