Watson And The Shark, 1778

Watson And The Shark

Ok, so this one is strictly a cryptid, but it’s such a great picture we had to include it in this round-up. This 1778 painting by John Singleton Copley depicts the rescue of Brook Watson from a shark attack. Although not particularly strange, spooky or weird, it certainly would be terrifying to find yourself naked and about to be eaten by a shark!
