When an elephant stayed in Antwerp in September 1563, Gerard van Groeningen (or Paludanus) took the opportunity to sketch him in different poses. His sketches were not preserved, but the print according to his design. Eight elephants are depicted in real-life poses in a landscape. The largest elephant, to the left, bears a great resemblance to the elephant on the vlugschrift by Jan Mollyns, which was published in the same year (British Museum: Inv. no. 1928-3-10-97). With 8-line Latin inscription by the Antwerp city doctor Hugo Favolius showing that the elephant is a state gift. The text also provides information about the construction and movements of the animal.
