Illustration of a "Bearded Whale"
For those who are curious, I found this illustration from the 1500's
I want to say this is weird, the absurdity of a true chimera, but the more I examine this beast's collective parts - whiskers, spine, claws and mane - the more familiar and utterly mundane he seems.
