National Personifications


(Download for full size)

First, let’s make this clear: I did not make any of these up. They are all old national personifications of countries that I just re-drew.

I wanted to see what they looked like next to each other.
:D
From left to right:
Lady of the Mountains (Iceland)
Ola Nordmann (Norway)
Holger the Dane (Denmark)
Mother Svea (Sweden)
Finnish Maiden (Finland)
Adelita (Mexico)
Uncle Sam (USA)
Mother Canada (Canada)
Jock Tamson (Scotland)
Kathleen Ni Houlihan (Ireland)
John Bull (England)
Dame Wales (Wales)

I tried to give them individual personalities as I see them from their pictures. :)

France's got Marianne, a young woman with a Phrygian cap representing the republic.
You'll see her basically everywhere : on stamps, on coins... Every town halls of France has to have a sculpted bust of her and the tradition is that, once in a while, a famous French woman is used as model : Brigitte Bardot, Catherine Deneuve and others you certainly have never heard of.
The one made from the French fashion model Laetitia Casta is famous for its rather daring cleavage (this is France after all) ;)

Technically, Uncle Sam is just the personification of our government. Our nation is Columbia. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Columbia_(name) She was used a lot during World War I and the Western Expansion to represent freedom, so a lot of political cartoons used her to show support for racial equality, black suffrage, veterans' rights, etc. Uncle Sam was strictly more of a recruiting tool and a symbol of patriotism, which is why he was on most of the recruitment/war bond adverts during both World Wars. Columbia is also at least a century older than Uncle Sam is.

The Lady of the Mountains' crown is supposed to be made of ice with fire on top, I don't think it'd be golden in color.
