Color engraving depicting a beached beluga whale (also known as white whale, melonhead, or sea canary). There are two seabirds in the foreground and several more in the near background. Three huts with conical roofs are depicted at the edge of some dense foliage in the far background, alongside a structure with a pointed roof and some human figures. The background also shows three canoes, one populated by rowers, and on the horizon, a ship with sails. This may be the ship Coquille, a fluyt used in Louis Duperrey's 1822 to 1825 circumnavigation of the world, referenced in the title.
