Seaweed print, possibly by Thomas Bewick?, United Kingdom, 1818

Did you know that there are over 12,000 species of seaweed, all with different sizes, shapes and colours? There are three main seaweed categories: red, green, and brown. The artist who made this picture used red ink to make this print, showing a small sample of red branched seaweed.
