Untitled Triptych

Melony Bronder

This triptych of oil paintings takes as its inspiration the short “Jabberwocky” poem. In the first panel, Bronder depicts on a hillside the “slithy toves” mentioned in the first line. These were, according to Humpty Dumpty, a combination of badger, lizard, and corkscrew. In the trees above sit agitated borogroves. The middle and right panels depict the dragon-like Jabberwock vanquished and decapitated by the vorpal sword of the nameless young hero.
