EDITORS COMMENTS
This coloured engraving by Heinrich Leutemann takes us back to Ancient Egypt, specifically to a scene of Pharaoh hunting a Hippopotamus. The print, dating back to 1866, beautifully captures the intensity and grandeur of this ancient sport. In the image, we see Pharaoh standing in a boat as it glides along the Nile River. He holds a spear or lance with determination and focus, ready to confront the mighty hippopotamus lurking beneath the water's surface. The rowers propel the boat forward with strength and precision while maintaining an air of reverence for their powerful ruler. The attention to detail in this artwork is remarkable; every stroke brings life to both human figures and animal subjects. The artist skillfully portrays the tension between man and beast, emphasizing Pharaoh's bravery as he faces one of nature's most formidable creatures. Leutemann's work transports us into an era long gone but forever etched in history. It offers a glimpse into Ancient Egyptian culture where pharaohs were not only rulers but also skilled hunters who sought adventure on the riverbanks. This print serves as a testament to humanity's enduring fascination with our past and our desire to preserve its stories through art. It reminds us that even centuries later, we can still be captivated by scenes from antiquity that speak volumes about our shared heritage.
