MOBY-DICK, Page 441

Title: But by far the most wonderful of all cetacean relics was the almost complete vast skeleton of an extinct monster, found in the year 1842, on the plantation of Judge Creagh, in Alabama. The awe-stricken credulous slaves in the vicinity took it for the bones of one of the fallen angels.

  2. I really enjoyed doing this one as well. I have always been drawn to these very centered, symmetrical, iconic shapes. This one looks much better in person since the halo of the angel is in fact gold ink, which sparkles nicely under light.
