Details

The Stronsay beast was the remains of a huge marine creature washed ashore on Stronsay in 1808. This sketch of it was made by Sir Alexander Gibson as he saw it. Zoologists at the time concluded it must be some unknown sea serpent. Scientists today have challenged this and concluded that it could have been the remains of an extremely large basking shark. Who knows...... To this day the story and the mystery live on in island folklore. I decided it would be fun to make the beast in the bath soap, with its monster bubbles and beast stamped into each one.
