This greetings card features the Medieval Elephant. This Elephant is strapped with three huge, buckled belts, to hold on its back an armed tower. This design is inspired by The Bodley Bestiary, a medieval manuscript held in the Bodleian Libraries. Illuminated in Southern England around 1225 - 1250 it is one of the most sumptuous examples of this type of illustrated book.
