The Symbolical Head

The story of our minds as conceived in "The Symbolical Head" in 1842. (Library of Congress)

"The Evil Tree," circa 1840s (Library of Congress).

Last but not least, "A Galvanised Corpse," circa 1830s-1840s (Library of Congress).

If every picture tells a story, what are we to make of these?

Say what you will about our ancestors. They did not lack for imagination!
