1605 Earthquake the Elephant Moves

Tina Bone

A Pint of Science Lecture Series 2016 (Cambridge). It was wonderful to work with Dr Alex Copley in a complementary collaboration between Science and Art, and an honour to be part of such a vibrant and informative event run by Creative Reactions. In the twelfth century BC people believed that the earth was held up by an elephant (or other animal, for example, frog or llama) and that earthquakes happened when the animal moved. Dr Copley's lecture was all about earthquakes. This is a framed print of the original water colour (sold) as an illumination telling the story.
