1928 Print King Edward Sow Dragons Teeth Adolf Hengeler Germany World War XDB2


This is an original 1928 halftone print by Adolf Hengeler entitled "King Edward Sows the Dragon's Teeth", possibly referring to King Edward VIII's sympathy for nazi Germany under Hitler's leadership prior to World War II. According to mythology once sown, dragon teeth produce a fine crop of fully-armed men, the spears of which may be seen beginning to sprout behind the monarch and his instrument-touting skinny companion.
