“Elementary, my dear Watson.”
This is a famous line, but it’s actually not in the original. (!)
The hamster on the right is the one who became John Watson.
His eyes are a noble, deep blue, like the gem azurite (indigo copper ore).
His elegantly trimmed beard and parted head are Watson’s charm points.
The round collar suits him.
With a small hand resting on his chin, he is pondering over the case.
What kind of difficult case will he be able to solve?
The checked tweed suit, layered vest, and red tie pin show the playfulness he put into fashion even in the solemn Victorian era.
If you paid attention to the bent legs and recalled his bad leg, you are a great detective!
He came back from the war in Afghanistan with an injured shoulder, but some people believe it was actually his leg, while others believe he had a bad leg due to psychogenic after-effects.
The small hands in his pockets are casually cute, but they actually reflect the hidden side of this seemingly calm and sensible man who unconsciously likes danger, and the pretentious side of his self-proclaimed love for women.
On the left is a hamster that has become Sherlock Holmes.
A bow tie is added to create an elegant atmosphere.
The crisp look in his eyes and expression expresses his calm and collected personality.
His all-back hairstyle is still intact.
And he is taller than Watson Ham.
His eye color is also not black, but a bluish green like the mineral malachite (peacock stone).
He wears a monotone suit and vest, and as an English gentleman, he must not forget his pocket watch on a chain.
In his hand was a walking stick, a product of his upper-class ancestors who were landowners.
In England, which was a class society at the time, the wealthy and middle to upper class gentlemen would wear large silk hats, gloves, and walking sticks, which were not suitable for work, in order to show their class.
The striped vest has a luster reminiscent of high-grade silk.
But then again, hamsters are so fluffy that the buttons look a little tight. And the hips….
He has a dignified appearance, but he’s willing to take off his hat and walking stick and crawl on the ground to investigate a case!
