the queen of spades, part 1: an introduction

drawing of the queen of spadesThis is a basic queen of spades with her elements represented in different colours. Most spade queens follow this pattern, although some face the opposite direction. The yellow section is the crown. The brown section is the headpiece — usually, the top strip is hair, the side strips are a scarf, and the neck area varies. The light blue section is a shield. The grey section is a hand with cuff, holding a flower. The light green is the dress — the centre is a breastplate with a brooch at its base. The pink is a staff. And the orange section is the division — there’s often a diagonal shape above a horizontal bar.

In my collection, I’ve identified three queen of spades families.
