    About

    This print centres on the alarming figure of a huge rampaging elephant, which appears to have been commandeered for battle. The Latin inscription suggests that the elephant may represent man's violent and reckless foolishness. The print, dated to 1550-70 and attributed to Joannes van Doetecum, is based on an earlier engraving by Alart du Hameel. However the inscription on the let instead credits the design to his contemporary Hieronymus Bosch, a creator os a fantastical and complex system of animal symbolism. This magnificent, large-scale print was commissioned by the leading Antwerp print publisher, Hieronymus Cock in the 16th century to capitalise on the popularity of Boschian imagery.
