Patrick Procktor - 'Camels, Tomb' (etching) is another wonderful example of Procktors etching and aquatint printmaking. In this image, at first glance, we have two large sculptures of Camels flanking a walkway, when we look further into the etching we see many more as the pathway continues into the distance. These sculptures are prevalent in Nanking and some are as large as 20 feet high.
