after Heinrich Rudolf SCHINZ

(Zurich 1777 - 1861)


(natives of the Aimoré Tribe also called Botocudos)
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 printed on wove paper, with small foxing spots more accentuated at the edges, otherwise in good general condition, embellished with a bright and accurate recent watercolouring..
Beautiful representation of a couple of natives naked, with the traditional tatoos and the “tembetàs”, wooden disks worn in their lips and ears.
The man is standing and holds two spears, the woman is bent over and touches a pecari just captured.

“Catalogue of the books manuscripts maps and drawings in the British Museum (Natural History)” Londra, 1903, vol. 4 pag. 1835.
