The Fish-men by heylister The Fish-men by heylister
This image was for a project in which I illustrated scenes from the book: 'The Description of a New World Called the Blazing World' written by the 'thrice noble, illustrious and excellent princess the Duchess of Newcastle c.1666'

“The Fish-men were to carry the Fire-stones on cases of Diamonds (for the Diamonds in the Blazing-world are in splendor so far beyond the Diamonds of this world, as Peble-stones are to the best sort of this Worlds Diamonds) and to uncase or uncover those Fire-stones no sooner but when they were just under the Enemies Ships, or close at their sides, and then to wet them, and set their ships on fire...”
