Subject and Association DescriptionThis is the finely carved, dense grained, woodblock from which the wood engraving was printed. Prints from this woodblock are held in the MRAG Collection.
"This wood engraving of a suitably evil goat in scrub appears to be an expension of the earlier 'Satan'. The goat and its distant companion look suitable inhabitants of the bush."
