Naïveté of Knaves

Daily Draw: Minchiate Etruria ~ Page of Wands/Knave of Staves

I often whip by Pages as insignificant but in their own way they are the crux of the story. The Person At The Front Desk. The person with the least experience, often a volunteer, the hapless Page gives us our first impression.

What do we know of Knaves? The Knave of Hearts, he stole the tarts and was done and dusted, tied up in court with a rabbit for counsel. A young man with a record and we can guess where his life is going.

Pages? Our nutshell of knowledge begins and ends with Monica Lewinsky, need I say more?

We have to begin life somewhere, sweeping up after horses is I suppose as good a place as any to learn the underbelly  way of life.
