Museum display tiger & python.

Museum display tiger & python.
This display of a tiger & python was created in 1813 and was originally part of the William Bullock collection. William Bullock was a 19th Century entertainer whose collection of animals went on tour to various countries until eventually being put on display in the ‘Egyptian Hall’ in London. His exhibits were designed to amaze and awe the Victorian public. Since then this exhibit has been drawn and painted, an oil painting by Alexandre Isidore is part of the Louvre collection in Paris and a woodcut by Thomas Bewick also exists. In more recent times it has also been photographed by The National Geographic magazine. It is now probably the best-known exhibit in The Whitaker, a museum located in the town of Rawtenstall in North-West England.

Photographed with a Nikon D300s camera and processed with Nikon Capture NX2 and PicMonkey.
