Sir John Tenniel
Wood-engraving by Dalziel
Illustration for the ninth chapter of Lewis Carroll's Through the Looking Glass (1865)
"'You look a little shy: let me introduce you to that leg of a mutton,' said the Red Queen. 'Alice-Mutton: Mutton-Alice.' The leg of mutton got up in a dish and made a little bow to Alice, who looked at it rather anxiously, as she had never had to carve a joint before."
