It is not an axe!

It's crystal-clear that the illustration style has

solid, even-width, non-abstract black edges on color pools, to represent real objects:

enter image description here

enter image description here

As far as we know, there are no exceptions to this.

But.

The illustration in question deliberately has an "abstract" soft edge:

enter image description here

Also, note that,

Extremely simply, axes don't have wibbly river-like handles.

My deep fear: It's not an axe.

As others have pointed out, this was drawn almost certainly in 30 seconds by a commercial illustrator with no knowledge of English or Swedish.

My guess:

  1. It was an abstract representation of "yellow" (it makes me think of "color coming from a paint tube"). Indeed, here - we could ask? - are we seeing a rare expression of what we could call artistic sensibility, a personal stroke, from a "factory-line art worker" - and then,

  2. for reasons which - tragically - it is extremely unlikely we will ever know, some other illustrator came along, and, decided to add something on the end (possibly - and we can only guess here - not realizing it was meant to be a, we could even say artistic, abstract representation of "yellow swish!") so as it make it more sensible; that person may have thought it was an axe handle, and knowing nothing about English characters just drew on an axe head - or - and here, I'm going to introduce a twist - I really think it may not be an axe head, but some other object we're guessingbut rather it was meant to be some other object we can only guess at. Note that something likean object such as "a brush" or "paint"a paint dispensor of some type" would make ideal sense here.

Indeed note that - and we can only put this in the chapter "speculative" - one could possibly argue that the illustration is "suspicious" in the vicinity of the line joins in question:

enter image description here

It can be difficult when a bright-eyed, cheerful investigation by - let's face it - rich people with computers and electronic panlingual dictionaries, leads us to not merely a conclusion, but, shall we say, leads us face to face with the incredibly microscopic - but no less powerful for it, far from it - psychological dramas that play out "on the line" of the world of Skyscrapers and Shanties, Lamborghinis and Slums, that is children's ball manufacture, today.

Have we even thought ...... what dramas could be found ..... on the other side of the ball?
