A close up of a desk with horse carving. The student must have been bored!

I imagine the teacher was well pleased when he/she saw this carving on the desk and had a few words with the carver. It is really good to see these old desks have been preserved. I wonder if the author of the book on the desk was Irish. Excellent picture Elaine. 5*

This drawing on the desk is magnificent. It reminds me of prehistoric drawings in the caverns.

I wonder if the "artist" got in trouble. When I taught high school art I would sometimes fine good drawings on a desk. I always told the student he should have drawn it on paper and turned it in for extra credit, and then I could have put it up on the wall for everyone to see. :-)

7 Oct 2019 7:44pm

@B. Thomas: It makes you wonder how many artistic creations were done like that!

Harry from Apex, NC, United States

bored, but with a bit of artistic talent
