Bornean orang-utan: This drawing by a Chinese artist was inspired by one of a pair given to Raffles in 1811 by the Sultan of Pontianak in western Borneo. Raffles's scribe Abdullah wrote that the male ape was 'very tame and wore trousers, a coat and hat given him by Mr Raffles' and behaved 'almost like that of a human being'

Maria Sibylla Merian was a Swiss naturalist and scientific illustrator. In 1699, following 8 years of painting and studying, Merian was awarded a grant by the city of Amsterdam to travel to Surinam. She then proceeded to publish her major work, Metamorphosis insectorum Surinamensium (1705) for which she became famous. Because of her careful observations and documentation of the metamorphosis of the butterfly, she is considered one of the most significant contributors to the field of entomology.
