'Figure du Poission nomme Vletif'


Figure of a Vletif, a mythological sea-beast, in a seascape including boats and an island. The animal is shown being hunted from shore by three figures using a bow, a trident and a spear. The creature is perhaps based on the narwhal; however the 'horn' depicted resembles the rostrum of the sawfish or carpenter shark family. Illustration from Discours d'Ambroise Pare ... a scavoir, de la mumie, de la licorne, des venins, et de la peste, avec une table des plus notables matieres contenues esdit discours (chez Gabriel Buon, Paris, 1582), f.30. Ambroise ParÚ (c.1510-1590) was a French barber surgeon and anatomist who served several Kings of France.

Original: woodcut engraving. 1582
