The Allegories Series brings a literary device to life through brilliant designs. An allegory is an artistic and literary device that uses a symbol to represent a place, event, monument, or even a nation. Female personifications of cultures, nations, or peoples have been in common practice in Europe for more than 2,000 years. For example, the first release of this series featured Britannia alongside Germania. Britannia has been associated with Britons and the British Isles for more than 2,000 years dating back to the Roman Empire’s colonization of England.
