    Found on Monster Brains, this French engraving from 1784 (click to see bigger) :



    Start of the Harpy or amphibious monster of Cadiz to be brought to the king and the royal family of Spain.

    This animal was taken on the banks of the lake of Fagua, in the Realm of Santa Fe, province of Chile, in Peru in the Meridional America. It was taken to the Viceroy who made it travel inland to the Gulf of honduras where it was shipped to Havana and from there to Bermuda in the Azores, and lastly to Cadiz. A great cage was built, who could easily contain it. Six strong horses lead the cart on which this cage is resting ; Oxen, cows and pigs are made to follow, in order to feed it. It is hoped it will soon reach its destination, where it is most impatiently waited. This monster is roughly 12 foot long : its face is like that of a man, the mouth very large ; it has two bull horns, donkey ears and a long mane like that of the lion : it has two woman's teats and bat wings. It has only two paws large and short, each armed with 5 horn claws. It has two tails, one shaped like that of the snake, able to seize its prey, and the other with a sting is used to kill it, the lower part of its body is covered with scales, and the upper part with hairs. It eats every day and ox and three pigs.

    In Paris, at Esnauts & Rapilly, rue Saint Jacques, at the sign of the City of Coutances

    That is far from being the weirdest or most innacurate thing in this engraving, I think.

    @Lampcommander @Taphead

    Tracked it down using Google's "similar picture" feature (seriously, this is the greatest thing since sliced bread) :

    from the "disturbation" project

    A piece of my recent project called “disturbation”.
    I’ve retold in pictures several stories that shouldn’t had been never seen.
    Capturing people during various intimate situations in “caught in the act” way,
    most of it is mockumentary, reconstruction of true and false memories.
    The rest is authentic.

    There’s nothing in common with political views of mine.

    When you put it that way, I kind of get worried the thing that drew my attention was that minor mistake. hmm what does that say about me?

    Probably old but never the less:
