This is the unique original Gouache painting by Angus McBride.

From the Look and Learn history of Rome. When the Roman Army under Caligula reached the north coast of France, Caligula ordered his soldiers to pick up all the sea shells they could find. This was part of a plan to conquer Britain. Instead Caligula was happy enough with the shells that symbolised his "victory over the ocean".
