hollowcrown, a photo by mefinx on Flickr. Within the hollow crown
That rounds the mortal temples of a king
Keeps Death his court, and there the antic sits,
Scoffing his state and mocking at his pomp,
Allowing him a breath, a little scene,
To monarchize, be feared, and kill with looks.
Richard II, act 3, sc. 2, l. 160-2.
