The main world religions, c1723, (1908). Creator: Unknown

The main world religions, c1723, (1908). Representation of the main religions of the world: in the foreground, group of Muslim men with prayer beads, one standing and preaching, another holds a list of the Seven Pillars of Islam, while sinners burn in Hell behind; the Roman Catholic Church, represented by a female figure wearing a papal tiara trampling a rabbi underfoot - the rabbi is holding a parchment with hebraic inscription; an old woman with crown of thorns, personifying Superstition, grabs the Victory from the female figure in armour representing Ancient Rome; on the left Christian religion personified stands under a tree with an open Bible which a Franciscan monk is trying to close; in front of them, a priest baptises a woman; scenes of 'pagan' cults in the distance. Frontispiece to "Ceremonies et coutumes religieuses de tous les peuples du monde", (Religious Ceremonies and Customs of All the Peoples of the World), by Jean-Frederic Bernard, illustrated by Bernard Picart. Although Picart never left Europe, he relied on accounts by those who had. The book 'marked a major turning point in European attitudes toward religious belief and hence the sacred'. [Amsterdam, 1723-1737]. From "La Revue De L'Art - Ancien et Moderne" - Volume XXIV, July-December 1908, [Paris, 1908]

'The Midwinter's Day Feast', June 1908, (1909). Artist: Unknown

'The Midwinter's Day Feast', June 1908, (1909). The midwinter feast at the Nimrod Hut, Cape Royds. Ernest Shackleton is at the head of the table. On the left side are Armytage, Brocklehurst, Marston, Day, Adams and Marshall; on the right, Roberts, Mackay, Murray, Wild, Joyce, Mawson. Anglo-Irish explorer Ernest Shackleton (1874-1922) made three expeditions to the Antarctic. During the second expedition, 1907-1909, he and three companions established a new record, Farthest South latitude at 88°S, only 97 geographical miles (112 statute miles, or 180 km) from the South Pole, the largest advance to the pole in exploration history. Members of his team also climbed Mount Erebus, the most active volcano in the Antarctic. Shackleton was knighted by King Edward VII for these achievements. He died during his third and last 'oceanographic and sub-antarctic' expedition, aged 47. Illustration from The Heart of the Antarctic, Vol. I, by E. H. Shackleton, C.V.O. [William Heinemann, London, 1909]
