Alice in Wonderland visit

Posted on: 16th June 2017

On Wednesday the 10th May 2017, Surval girls were fortunate to visit the ‘Alice au Pays de Merveilles’ museum in St. Maurice. Successful in 2016, the exhibition displays different artistic styles of the classic children’s tale, Alice in Wonderland.

Originally entitled, Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland and written during the 19th century by mathematician, Lewis Carroll, the story of Alice has been regarded as one of the best examples of literary nonsense. After the success of Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland, Carroll went on to write and release the sequel, Alice Through the Looking Glass. Since the release of this tale, the adventures of Alice have been adapted to multiple films as well as stage plays.

During our visit, we were able to learn interesting facts about the author and his main inspiration, Alice Liddel. Throughout the museum, multiple rooms contained different sets and props that all correlated to the characters and the story; one room was even set up for croquet which Alice plays with the Queen, in a rather unconventional way. While the museum obtained different work from artists and students, we were fortunate to contribute to the exposition.

Surval’s visit to the ‘Alice au Pays de Merveilles’ was an unforgettable experience! The story of Alice captivates the growth of one individual; an evolution of one-self while still remaining true to one-self. A lesson that is as true today as it was when the book was first written.
