This cat’s eyes remind me judge only. So it needs judge’s outfit. Nowadays, judges in United States don’t wear wig anymore. But I simply like the outfit with wig, it looks so cool and feels so antique. Thus I pick up this type of outfit just like judges in United Kingdom.
According to internet, originating in Europe, wigs became a popular fashion item in the UK during the reign of King Charles II (1660-1685), especially among the upper classes and aristocracy of the time. The wig was seen as a symbol of authority, and lawyers would wear their wigs in the courtroom, as well as outside of it, to show their status and power. Despite evidence suggesting some lawyers were hesitant to wear the wigs, by the end of King Charles II’s reign wigs were fully accepted by judges.
A century or so later the popularity of the wig waned, however, the tradition to wear wigs within the legal profession remained and became a formal requirement.
The desk, name plate and little hammer were all straightforward. I couldn’t determine the background for a while. I tried simple solid color background like portrait painting. I also tried different court related sigils but they didn’t fit well until the sigil of International Court of Justice. I love that it has rays of sun. Perfect for this cat’s background.
It somehow feels like ancient Egyptian style. The wig, the sun rays in background can all be related to Pharaoh. And it has gold color. 🤣
I know ancient Egyptian loved cat!
