Character description

The Lion: Lions are characters in many folktales and stories; this item refers specifically to the Lion of Through the Looking Glass. We find him contesting the crown with the Unicorn, based on an old rhyme. Neither is shown as victorious in the book. It is believed that Tenniel's illustration of the Lion is supposed to be based on Gladstone.
