This print is an illustration titled "Destruction of Leviathan" by Gustave Doré, originating from the 19th century. This work is likely to be part of the series of illustrations Doré created for the Bible. It shows a dramatic scene with a tumultuous sea and the Leviathan, a sea monster from biblical texts, in the midst of being slain. The Leviathan is depicted as a colossal, serpentine creature writhing in the ocean waves, which crash around it in a formidable display of power. Above the chaos, a figure radiating with light, presumably representing God, is shown wielding a spear, symbolizing divine intervention and power. Doré's work is renowned for its intricate details, dramatic use of contrast, and the capacity to convey a profound narrative through a single image.
