This vibrant Jungle landscape print is both stunning and holds a rich history. Extracted from the 19th century book; Historia Naturalis Palmarum, the 'Morenia Poppigiana and Forest' print depicts the travels and studies of two German botanists across the jungles of South America circa 1823 - 1850. Carl (Karl) Friedrich von Martius created this botanical book of palms to detail his journey and discoveries alongside Johann Baptist Ritter von Spix all those years ago.

This A3 print has been digitally restored to enable the high resolution finish and crisp detailing shown in this print, it truly encapsulates the magical scenes these two adventurers would have witnessed whilst trekking through the jungle. This print is set on a natural border which includes the title inscribed at the bottom, custom framing is available by us, see more details below, and we recommend this print to be set within a black wooden frame to fully showcase its beauty.

*This print may appear off-axis in the photo featured but this is just down to the example copy being from the original book. The A3 print you receive is perfectly straight and appears with a natural border that frames the jungle scene.
