Traveling further east, we encounter "Shakyamuni Buddha, " an 18th-century Tibetan artwork crafted with mineral pigments on cotton. The serenity emanating from this piece reflects the spiritual teachings and enlightenment sought by many during that era. Venturing back to Europe during the 15th century, an engraving titled "The Bishop of Tournai receiving the tithe of beer in Tournai" portrays a unique aspect of medieval life – ecclesiastical involvement in local customs such as brewing beer. By shifting our gaze towards nature's beauty, "By The Sea" transports us to a tranquil coastal setting captured skillfully through oil on canvas brushstrokes in 1881. This painting invites contemplation and appreciation for the vastness and power of our oceans. Switching gears to satire infused with culinary delights, "The Plum Pudding in Danger or State Epicures taking un Petit Souper" presents an amusing engraving from 1805.

Moving forward chronologically but remaining within England's borders is "Making the Shoreham Railroad.
