If the Exhibition of Arts And Crafts during ‘The Chimes of Big Ben’ is anything to judge by, it would seem The Village suffers from the “cult of the personality” when an individual uses mass media, propaganda, or other such methods to create an idolized hero, and sometimes a worshipful image, at times through flattery and praise. Is that why the majority of art work is of Number 2’s image, because they see Number 2 as a worshipful image? Such appears to be his popularity, as he seems to be well liked, even loved by the people, and that does seem to please Number 2 at the Exhibition of Arts and Crafts. Now which of the busts of Number 2 belongs to Madam Professor?
“Highly original” Number 6 said sarcastically.In the main, contributors to the exhibition used Number 2 as a model for their art work, such is his populartiy as a Chief Administrator of The Village. From drawings, sketches, and watercolours to the General’s King of his hand carved chess set. Eventually even Number 6’s piece of abtract art incorporates the image of Number 2!
That sail, its rather Viking looking don’t you think that?
