HMS 'Erebus' and 'Terror' in the Antarctic
One of a pair with BHC1214. The artist has portrayed the two ships, 'Erebus' and 'Terror' in the Antarctic. They represent the only human presence in an environment of rough peaks, glaciers, mountains and jagged rocks. The two ships are portrayed tossed in the waves as they navigate a passage though a sound. The ship to the right is signalling with flags to the other. In the foreground is Carmichael's interpretation of the wildlife to be found in the Antarctic. A whale sends up a jet of water in the foreground to the left.
