The Wise Llama is one of my favorite posts that I have done for Uncrated. So, when I found more photos of the handsome Sir Lancelot while I was processing the John and Nora Wise Papers in the DMA Archives, I knew I had to share.
Here is Sir Lancelot, a pure white llama, promoting John Wise’s exhibition World of Ancient Gold at the 1964 New York World’s Fair. Nora Wise is behind Sir Lancelot, holding his reins.
The following two photos show Sir Lancelot enjoying treats and showing off his John Wise Ltd. accessory while posing for photos during his day at the Fair.
Sir Lancelot is by far the cutest llama in the archives . . . OK he is the only one, but he’s still adorable.
