Oh you do have to blame the Bard for the sudden mention of the statue in the last act of the play.... Both characters - Paulina in Winter's Tale, and here Violetta, mention the statue at about the same point in the story. Though Paulina calls it a painting she had had made in the perfect likeness of the dead queen, most productions have turned it into a statue, for obvious reasons.... I think if the statue had been mentioned earlier, people would quickly surmise that the queen never had died, dont you thyink?


I do think this is a most incredible website for proclaiming great wonders of Our God!
