Note: this was one of Dale’s earliest wood engravings. To accommodate its lengthy name, she titled, numbered and signed the print along the images’ left, bottom, and right sides.

​​The print is a portrait bust of a walrus who looked so lugubrious that I gave it that very long name. This is a wood engraving, which is something quite different from a woodcut. It is done with engraving tools on very hard end-grain wood – boxwood in this case.
