In 1793 two indigenous voyagers, Bennelong and Yemmerrawanne, sailed with Governor Phillip to England. This exhibition of oil pastel drawings takes as its inspiration the period that the travellers spent in and around London, in particular their visit to the Tower of London, where they saw exotic animals like tigers, lions and wolves, the medieval armoury and possibly even William Blake, who sketched the tiger there to illustrate his famous poem in that very same year.
