Text description provided by the architects. When Alice had come within a few yards of it, she saw that it had eyes and a nose and mouth ; {…} she saw clearly that it was HUMPTY DUMPTY himself. 'It can't be anybody else!' she said to herself. 'I'm as certain of it, as if his name were written all over his face !'

Humpty Dumpty was sitting, with his legs crossed like a Turk, on the top of a high wall - such a narrow one that Alice quite wondered how he could keep his balance - and, as his eyes were steadily fixed in the opposite direction, and he didn't take the least notice of her, she thought he must be a stuffed figure, after all.

Alice didn't know what to say to this: it wasn't at all like conversation, she thought, as he never said anything to her ; in fact, his last remark was evidently addressed to a tree - so she stood and softly repeated to herself :

'Humpty Dumpty sat on a wall :

Humpty Dumpty had a great fall.

All the King's horses and all the King's men

Couldn't put Humpty Dumpty in his place again.'
