As individual and ambiguous as Edward Lear intended - is as best as i will try to describe this piece. One most striking bit of expression which resonates with me is at letter 'X'. there is an uncanny semblance to the x-man, Wolverine (X-man has big claws) ! which brings me to two things: 1. the story behind the creation of the cartoon team and particular character by Marvel/Stan Lee; and 2. the transcendence which is the Universal Creative.
