The Re-Imagined Boston Tea Party
To mark the 250th anniversary of the Boston Tea Party and the 125th anniversary of the death of Lewis Carroll, celebrated artist Rory Dobner brings a magical touch of Wonderland to the historic events in Boston's harbor. Alice, who represents Samuel Adams, a leader of the Sons of Liberty, sits at the head of the table looking splendid in contemporary colonists' clothing. Perched above Alice is a glowering gryphon, a symbol of the power and autonomy so urgently desired by the colonists. The Mad Hatter, who represents none other than "mad" King George III himself, sits opposite Alice. King George was responsible for the punitive 'taxation without representation' that had so angered the Sons of Liberty. Between the two opposing parties sits the March Hare, whose Native American dress gives him away as one of the men who had spent a long, tiring night destroying the ships' cargo before carefully sweeping the decks clean. Finally, beside the Mad Hatter sits the dozy Dormouse, keeping note of checks and balances on his ledger, here representing the Boston tax and duty officers who must have spent that morning trying to make sense of the huge losses to the British purse caused by all that tea now flowing in the harbor waters.

The Boston Tea Party was a historic political protest that took place on December 16, 1773, in Boston, Massachusetts, during the period leading up to the American Revolution. It was a significant event in the colonists' resistance against British taxation policies and played a crucial role in the eventual fight for American independence. During this time, the British government had imposed various taxes on the American colonies without their consent, leading to widespread dissatisfaction and opposition among the colonists. One of these taxes was the Tea Act of 1773, which granted the British East India Company a monopoly on tea sales in the colonies and allowed them to sell tea at a reduced price, undercutting local tea merchants.
