Narinari (Pylstert)


Spotted eagle ray (Aetobatus narinari), built on the wood-cut by Marcgrave, as seen in the image pg. 289 of the Carnegie Institution of Washington‘s publication, 1914 (Internet Archive)


Today I was thinking about “float like a butterfly, sting like a bee”: Muhammad Ali, born Cassius Marcellus Clay –which rhymes with ray–has passed away.
