Victorian Man in the Moon Cheese
Isn’t this fun?!! This is a cute and quirky little Victorian trade card featuring a wonderful yellow man in the moon face and a funny little Cheese maker man with a chef’s hat! I’ve extracted the Moon in case you want to use him separately.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE this man in the moon image, thank you so much for sharing it

  18. I agree with AkasaWolfsong that the moon is a woman, as a female archetype, yet many of us were raised to see that face as the “man in the moon”. Nevertheless, this is a unique and lovely illustration. Thank you, Karen!! xxx Nancy
