A Kiwi Queen



Select your size and postage


The Queen was seen by many as an institution, not just a human being; that whole "we" thing and has a leadership role very much based in the presentation of the baubles of office as they are termed by some. These baubles are of course not personal treasure of an individual but representations of the intent of office. Hence the changing of the necklace, for example, to a stethoscope and the placement of Nightingales in the Crown. The diamond encrusted presentation of the medical equipment serves to exaggerate and push forward the place of the medical staff in importance rather than to aggrandise the Queen's individual position. There is play in the brooch which is based on one remembering Florence Nightingale's service in the Crimea. The V is Changed to E to make a play on Emergency Room and Elizabeth Regina. The Queen is an exemplary example of life long service to the hive and this artwork represents that, Service. We now know that Elizabeth Windsor walked into several brutal storms at the end of her life with courage, strength and dignity. They were a tough last stanza of what will always be remembered as a glorious poem of dedication. God Bless her.
