Artwork of the week

Depiction of an unusually hirsute sea serpent from Hart Nautical Collections (Unknown 19th century – larger image here). Sure, I’ve heard they come in all shapes and sizes… but hairy ones?

    All I’m thinking is–that’s a lotta miles to braid. I’m imagining a lovestruck sailor on deck wooing the serpent.

    Agreed… and imagine the tangles if it isn’t braided. I bet there is a haunting ode to it written down somewhere, in the vein of Rime of the Ancient Mariner.
