Colored engraving of a stranded male whale on a beach surrounded by men and women. On the left, one man is trying to lift the tail. Two others, and a little girl, look on, alongside a man on horseback. A man in blue holds a brown rod, probably a ruler. At the far right, a man in blue uses a pointer to point out some feature of the whale's head to another man and a woman. The whale's shape is highly distorted. Underneath the image is the following text: "V. Vdr. Vinne adviv. del." "CAGELOT lang 61 voeten." "den 20 Februari 1762 tuslen Zantvoort en Wyk-op-Zee aangedreeven." In English, "61-foot-long Cachelot, beached between Zantvoort and Wyk-op-Zee on 20 February 1762."
