This is the original woodblock engraved by the brother Dalziel for the illustration 'Jacob hears the voice of the Lord' based on Genesis chapter 46, verse 2. It appears that, like many of the woodblocks for the Dalziel's Bible, this block was engraved in the mid 1860s although the Bible Gallery was not published until 1881.
