natives of Vanikoro

after Heinrich Rudolf SCHINZ (Zurich 1777 - 1861)

“Kleidung der bewohner von Vanikoro”

(natives of Vanikoro in the Santa Cruz Islands)
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 group of natives of the Vanikoro Island that is part of the Santa Cruz Islands in the archipelago of the Solomon Islands southwestern Pacifi Ocean.
The couple in the foreground show off traditional head dresses and loincloths, the native at centre holds a bow and arrows, in the background a woman brings fruit.
