Product description

Including jellyfish, octopi, shells, coral and algae, and microscopic creatures, "Natural Curiosities: The Prints of Ernst Haeckel 2015 Boxed Poster Calendar "brings to life the wonders of the deep. Depicting a multitude of underseas life forms and seashells in precise detail and vivid colors, the exquisitely rendered prints of German naturalist Ernst Haeckel (1834-1919) immediately became world famous upon their publication at the end of the nineteenth century and have inspired generations of artists, architects, designers, and scientists. An early and influential champion of Darwin, Haeckel was also a believer in monism and his compellingly beautiful and accurate illustrations express this idea of the unity of all life. The twelve stunning plates in this "Natural Curiosities 2015" showcase his genius as a biologist and a draftsman. Packaged in a durable and resealable box, each of the twelve 11 x 14-inch prints is formatted to fit any ready-made frame, making this calendar a sophisticated and practical way to decorate home or office.
