We Three Kings 2013

The last Christmas Lunch bag (and lunch bag) of 2013 is an interpretation of "We Three Kings" represented by homeless men outside of the Stable Inn.  The traditional gifts of gold, frankincense, and myrrh hinted in the coffee cup, the box that is being carried, and the hat.

Robot Dragon Slayer meets the Shaman

For generations the Shaman had hid in amongst the debris of the Lost Ones, perfecting the spells and following the old rituals, protecting the bastion of healing from the onslaught of the dragons.  Now though, her citadel had been breached by the Robot that stood at the edge of the flickering light of the remaining ancient oracles.

It is the time of the school year when Sara's lunch bags switch over the Christmas Carols. This week we start with "Hark the Herald Angels Sing". The angels are singing or harking away.

Col-Erase Pencil, Pitt Pens, copic marker, prismacolor, gel pens, and oil pastels are combined on the lunch bag to create the illustration.

There is a text insert that gives the history of the carol.
