Artist's Description

Croquet is a sport that involves hitting wooden balls with a mallet through hoops embedded in a grass playing court.
Believed to have been introduced to Britain from France during the 1630–1685 reign of Charles II of England. The rules were registered by Isaac Spratt in November 1856.
Lewis Carroll featured a nonsense version of the game in the popular children’s novel Alice’s Adventures in Wonderland: a hedgehog was used as the ball, a flamingo as the mallet, and playing cards as the hoops.
