Britannia - the embodied spirit of Britain (in much the same way as Uncle Sam is used in the US).
An Empire on which the sun never set... etc. etc.
This was done as a favour to a friend of mind who could best be described (in this context) as having a rather... Victorian frame of mind.
EDIT: I am moving this to the scraps section. It seems to attract a disproportionate number of my viewers, and for the most part these viewers are not interested in anything else in my gallery. Perhaps if the attraction of erstwhile British patriots led to more traffic I would appreciate it more, but having something this bad as my most-faved piece is just silly.
EDIT 2: And of course, this picture has more favs than any of my other images (possibly more than all my other pictures COMBINED). Yet the image quality is so horrible it's a complete embarssment. Yep, same old DevArt.
I'd take it down if I didn't pray that maybe one in ten of the ideologues who fav this travesty would stop and look at some of my other less-terrible junk.
