    Do you know whose face is in the Hogart illustration ?

    It’s not anyone in particular. The panel is from the story ‘The God of Tarzan’, where Tarzan speculates that one meaning of the word he’s decided equates with god would be “to form out of nothing”. So this is what Hogarth reflects in his great drawing. There’s also the shape of a bird above Tarzan’s body, an ape face near his extended foot, and an ape in profile to the far right. And the hand shapes made by the tree are quite intentional.
