EDITORS COMMENTS
This print titled "Ducks on the sacred lake on Comoro Island 61, Solomons merchants buying ivory and peacocks at Sofala, Mozambique 62, and natives with torches chasing a wild elephant in Mozambique 63" takes us back to the 19th century Africa. The handcoloured copperplate engraving by English School showcases an array of remarkable scenes that depict the rich history and wildlife of this diverse continent. In the foreground, we see a serene scene of ducks gracefully gliding across the sacred lake on Comoro Island. Their vibrant feathers contrast beautifully against the calm waters, creating a picturesque sight that embodies tranquility. Moving towards the middle ground, our attention is drawn to Solomons merchants engaged in trade activities at Sofala in Mozambique. Ivory tusks and majestic peacocks are being exchanged, symbolizing both wealth and exoticism. This glimpse into commerce during this era provides insight into global connections and cultural exchange. The background reveals an exhilarating chase as native hunters armed with torches pursue a wild elephant through the untamed wilderness of Mozambique. The intensity captured in this moment reflects man's interaction with nature - a primal struggle between survival and dominance. Reviving memories from Rev. Isaac Taylor's book "Scenes in Africa for the Amusement and Instruction of Little Tarry-at-Home Travelers" this print serves as both an educational tool and artistic masterpiece. It transports us back to a time when exploration was limited but imagination knew no bounds. Through its intricate details and vivid colors, this image invites viewers to embark on their own journey through African history while celebrating its awe-inspiring landscapes, magnificent animals, and cultural encounters that continue to shape our world today.
