Description

This print of a wood engraving of Ned Kelly in his final battle is based on a sketch 'drawn on the spot' by T. Carrington. The picture shows a Ned Kelly in his helmet firing his pistol. His plate body armour is hidden by an overcoat. The armour and helmet draw obvious parallels to suits of armour worn by medieval knights. The picture is held at the State Library of Victoria.
