Joe had replied privately to me sometime ago so I knew Shylock was not 
represented as a ginger, but I'd not yet seen the images  Thanks for 
these, Joe!  Curiously, it seems the redhead is none other than Portia! 
  She is often seen, by way of flattery, as a character a bit parallel 
Queen Elizabeth.  I guess Linton must have been onto her hair color. 
(Now I'll have to go back to see if there is mention of her hair color 
in the play.)

Cheers,
Nicole Coonradt
