natives of the Caroline Islands

after Heinrich Rudolf SCHINZ

(Zurich 1777 - 1861)

“Tamor und seine Frau von den Carolinischen Jnseln”

(natives of the Caroline Islands in the Western Pacific Ocean)
Original lithograph from the graphic kit of the work “Naturgeschichte und Abbildungen der Menschen und der Saugetiere” printed by the swiss lithographer Honegger and published in Zurich betwen 1830 and 1835.
Nice example with a slight stain on the lower left corner otherwise in good general condition, embellished with a bright and accurate recent watercolouring.
Beautiful representation of a couple of natives of the archipelago of the Caroline Islands that are located in the Western Pacific and are part of Micronesia, to note the peculiarity of the male body that appears almost entirely tattooed.
