Made Me Smile

A wood engraving by  Heinrich Leutemann c. 1865 titled "Interrupted Road Surveying in Singapore"

Under the exhibit was this description:
"An imaginative retelling of colonial architect  GD Coleman's road surveying trip in 1835 and the group's encounter with a tiger."

A woodblock print by See Cheen Tee

  1. They made me smile too, I expect she's telling her to marry some unsuitable man!
