Annie Playne's Scrapbook

Drawing 15 – Elephant

 

 

Elephant

 

Dimensions: 207 x 132

Initials: None

Artist: Appears to be Annie Playne

Not published in TBAG

Comments: This sketch of the elephant appears to be Annie Playne's work. The elephant was uncovered in the early 1700s and was recorded by Edmund Brown. It was destroyed before Lysons' excavations and Lysons was forced to use Brown's drawing for his excavation report. The sketch in Annie Playne's scrapbook appears to be copied directly from Lysons' report.
