The camelopard, or, A new hobby

description below

“George IV sits jauntily astride a tall high-stepping giraffe, at the base of the neck, hands on hips. Lady Conyngham (left) sits sideways on the sloping back, close to the tail, her vast posterior projecting. She smiles over her shoulder. He wears a straw hat with wide curving brim. She is décolletée, with large gigot sleeves and feathers in her hair. Four Nubians (right) bow obsequiously.”–British Museum online catalogue.
