An eagle, teathered to a rock in front of minarets and camels. Edward Julius Detmold (1883-1957) and his twin Charles Maurice Detmold (1883-1908) were twins and child protegés who worked very closely together until C.M. Detmold committed suicide in 1908. Traumatised, Edward produced only one etching in the next fifteen years, returning to the art only in 1923.
