When the old king dies, a Duke and Earl find themselves in competition for the Kingdom. Their vanity and greed sees them locked in a futile battle, which impacts the lives of the people who live in the Kingdom.
But what do the people want? And will anyone listen? A moralistic tale about the dangers of vanity and power hungry leaders.
Inspired by the Bayeux Tapestry, Emma Lewis' distinctive collage style lends a unique approach to this contemporary folktale.
