Look for the woman

A few years ago I discovered a book titled “Doctor Diamond’s Portraits of the Insane” written by Adrienne Burrows and Iwan Schumacher. Especially the photograph of a young woman (titled Queen A.D., dated around 1854) fascinated me. Quotation Dr. Diamond: “… Her delusions consisted in the supposed possession of great wealth, and of an exalted station of a queen.” Proud, and with raised “sceptre” in her hands, Queen A.D. sets out to explore thoroughly the wideness of her ruined realm.
