The Details

Design Inspiration

The impish ‘Harlequin’, one of the comic characters of the Commedia dell’arte theatrical tradition, inspired the design for the ‘Harlequin Imp’ to celebrate theatres, the arts and culture in Lincolnshire. Wearing his characteristic costume of multicoloured diamonds, the ‘Harlequin Imp’, with his skill and quick wit, represents the lighter side of life while the masks of ‘comedy and tragedy’ are synonymous with the stories told on the theatrical stage. The Shakespearian quote on the back sums up the lives of all of life’s players.
