Moby Dick Chapter 55 - 57

Of the Monstrous Pictures of Whales/Of the Less Erroneous Pictures of Whales, and the True Pictures of Whaling Scenes/Of Whales In Paint; In Teeth; In Wood; In Sheet-iron; In Stone; In Mountains; In Stars

There are many men who have tried to paint pictures of a whale, but none have truly succeeded; most drawings are exaggerated, or grossly inaccurate. There are some pictures of whales that are close to correct; these generally manage to capture the essence of whaling, if not the exact physical measurements. There are pictures of whales everywhere, from paintings by beggars to engravings in wood.
