the inhabitants of Nuhu Hiva Island Marquesas

after Heinrich Rudolf SCHINZ

(Zurich 1777 - 1861)


(the inhabitants of Nuhu Hiva Island Marquesas)
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 between 1830 and 1835.
Nice example with some foxing stains around the subject otherwise in good general condition, embellished with a bright and accurate recent watercolouring.
Very nice rapresentation of two Marquesas warriors with traditional tribal tattoos. Nuka Hiwa is the largest island of the Marquesas in French Polinesia. The Nukahivans were famous for their elaborate traditional tattoos.
