Last week's detail came from Eugene Delacroix's orgy of destruction The Death of Sardanapalus.
The scene is loosely based on an original idea by Lord Byron. A dying oriental despot commands that all his possessions, human and animal, should die with him.
The first three correct entries drawn were from: Ohna Falby, of Budleigh Salterton, Devon; Mrs A Corry, of Camblesforth, North Yorkshire; and Marcus Rees-Roberts, of Cambridge. Each will receive a bottle of champagne, as will the winners of this week's competition.
