Parsival and the Fisher King

This picture is a portrayal of Parsival meeting the Fisher King. The Fisher King is portrayed in his bed, which is accurate because he is wounded and inept. He is wounded either in the legs or in the groin, and is not able to move by himself.

One thing that I found interesting about this portrayal is that Parsival seems to be holding the white spear that drips red blood. I found this inaccurate because in the story Parsival fails to ask what the spear is, and therefore I do not think that he would be holding the spear.
