    wow! 'domesticliated' - i think that's what i've fought against my whole life! Published by Sherwood, Nealy & Jones. Nov. 1810. In the lower left it says 'G. Heriot Esq.' for George Heriot, artist. in the lower right it says 'Busby sculp.' which i don't understand. This was printed from around 1780 thru the 1820s. I'm going to get a matte cut for it in the frame shown. I'm also thinking about asking an artist friend color it in w/ colored pencil or pastels. It seems a bit sacrilegious, but i don't care. it's for my own pleasure, so why not?

      "Domiciliated" isn't it, presumably referring to its subjects having a "domicile"? (a fancy word for a home, that is...)

      n. the country that a person treats as their permanent home, or lives in and has a substantial connection with.
      v. treat a specified country as a permanent home.
      (definitions stolen from Oxford Languages and Google, whose link to them is ridiculously long and cumbersome)

      What the Anglo-Saxons (et al) eventually *did* to those people rather goes against the whole point of the old picture, probably...one could wonder if the artist ever had a clue...true history is a b*tch sometimes, ain't it...??

      Oh, and I say *go ahead* and have your artist friend add some (hopefully tastefully subtle) coloration to it if you wanna, for the exact reason you state you'd like to... :-) :-) :-)

      Thanks Obscure and kunst! there's a part of me that still think 'domiciliated' is a much more loaded word than Oxford is letting on. but i could be wrong.
