… Alice matured. This world holds her. But the door in the fairy tale is still slightly opened and the key laid down in her palm. And again this eternally hurrying rabbit…

Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland (commonly shortened to Alice in Wonderland) is an 1865 novel written by English mathematician Charles Lutwidge Dodgson under the pseudonym Lewis Carroll. It tells of a girl named Alice falling through a rabbit hole into a fantasy world populated by peculiar, anthropomorphic creatures. The tale plays with logic, giving the story lasting popularity with adults as well as with children. It is considered to be one of the best examples of the literary nonsense genre. Its narrative course and structure, characters and imagery have been enormously influential in both popular culture and literature, art  especially in the fantasy genre.

Some of the book’s adventures may have been based on or influenced by people, situations, and buildings in Oxford and at Christ Church. For example, the “Rabbit Hole” might have been inspired by the actual stairs in the back of the main hall in Christ Church. A carving of a griffon and rabbit may have provided inspiration for the tale, as seen in Ripon Cathedral, where Carroll’s father was a canon.

“We’re all mad here.”
Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

“Imagination is the only weapon in the war against reality.”
Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

“Alice:How long is forever? White Rabbit:Sometimes, just one second.”
Lewis Carroll, Alice in Wonderland

Key’s keeper painting Vlad Tasoff is based on my fantasies and sensations of the famous book Alice in Wonderland.
