EDITORS COMMENTS
This coloured engraving, titled "Illustration for The Costume of the Original Inhabitants of the British Islands" takes us on a journey back in time to explore the rich history and culture of Britain's early inhabitants. Created by an English School artist in the 19th century, this print showcases the unique attire and body art of these prehistoric tribes. The image depicts a group of Caledonians, ancient Britons from Scotland, adorned with intricate tattoos and painted skin. Their dress reflects their connection to nature and their environment, as they are seen wearing animal skins and primitive accessories. This illustration offers a glimpse into the lives of these early settlers, providing valuable insights into their customs and traditions. Commissioned for Samuel Rush Meyrick and Charles Hamilton Smith's book on British Island costumes in 1821, this artwork serves as both an educational tool and a work of art. It transports us to a time long gone while reminding us of our shared heritage. As we observe this piece from Fine Art Finder's Elgar Collection, we are reminded that history is not just about dates or events but also about people who lived before us. Through this print, we can appreciate the diversity within British culture throughout different periods in time. Let it inspire curiosity about our ancestors' way of life while celebrating our collective identity as inhabitants of these beautiful islands known today as Great Britain.
