Is this how King John really looked when he signed the Magna Carta?

The work of the Toronto artist Michael Seward (also sometimes residing in Moncton, Montreal,  Calgary, etc, in case anyone is thinking of appointing him to the Senate of Canada) is discussed in two articles on this site :

* “Walking winter wonderland with black holes, Alaska pot, Douglas Coupland, and Michael Seward’s Aeschylus,” Feb 27th, 2015.  By L. Frank Bunting.

* “The French fall classic 2006 .. and Central Europe in Toronto Art,” Oct 23rd, 2006. By Randall White.

We are also pleased to announce that, in commemoration of the 800th anniversary of the signing of the Magna Carta at Runnymede (and the recent death of the jazz artist Ornette Coleman in Manhattan), the website “Michael Seward … Visual Artist” has been awarded the first counterweights online art prize.  (Or coap  —  a more alluring name is being investigated by the central committee.)

The next counterweights online art prize will be discussed after the Canadian federal election on (we think right now) October 19, 2015. Many thanks to all involved this time around.
