King Arthur and the Deer at the round table

Sometimes we just post for little more reason than the discovery of deerhounds featured in an illustration.

Here we have an illustration from an online free clip art website, featuring King Arthur at the feasting round table, viewing a poor deer, given what appears to be little chance in the chase. A crowd of court onlookers, two hounds and one small tarrier, harrying their quarry - hopefully, prior to it’s release - for the deer to be afforded a sporting chance.

This rendering seems to feature a less than gallant slant on the hunting activity but the original art source which is likely to be a book illustration is not credited, nor does it feature any descriptions or book references.

But the hounds make it of interest here - view and enjoy.
