Picture of the Week #799

Wax figure of Henry VIII at the Bosworth Battlefield Museum. Photo May 2015.

Since I haven’t been to Ireland (YET – I hope to change that in the next 5-ish years), I didn’t have much that was appropriate for St. Patrick’s Day, so here’s a waxwork Henry VIII in a jaunty green hunting outfit. Henry VIII decided to upgrade himself from “Lord of Ireland” to “King of Ireland” in 1542, so I guess there is still a connection to Ireland for today’s photo.
