Verona Diner

(Verona Dinner)

Show Explanation

The basis of the drawing is the castle of Verona. The three towers are constructed with a wine glass and represent three married couples. The initials of their name are depicted at the bottom left, alternating with a glass in between.

The clock indicates dinner time and also the place of the city, namely Verona (illustrated by the big V on the top left). The arrow next to the clock indicates the direction of movement of the clock. Within the clock there is a shape of an ice cream. The three scoops are cannonballs and the base is made up by three guns. Together they form an ice cream. Next to the clock is a wedding cake with a drawing of a spoon and a knife which represents the dinner. Next to it is a coffee bag with different X-signs as several coffees were drunken.

In the right corner is an arrow which goes through two rings. The rings are from the bride and groom. Underneath there is a staircase which leads to the entrance of the castle. At the bottom right there is a kissing couple, namely Romeo and Juliette. The people who have made the city of Verona famous through their sad story. The castle walls are illustrated by the dark thread which goes through the drawing.
