Side-By-Side: Queen of Swords
For Day 24 of Side by Side, I drew the Queen of Swords. On the right, we see a stern-faced queen holding an upraised sword in her right hand. Her throne is decorated with cherubs, and a bird soars above the clouds in the background. On the left, Mary Tape sits atop Mount Tamalpais, overlooking San Francisco. She holds a pen as her weapon and the symbol of her power. On her lap is the court decision for which she and her daughter are famous. Swords form the backrest of her throne, and birds soar among the clouds above the mountain ridge.
