a family of the Puri tribe in Brazil

after Heinrich Rudolf SCHINZ (Zurich 1777 - 1861)

“die Puris in ihrer hutte” (a family of the Puri tribe in Brazil)
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 family of natives from the Puri tribe that lived along the northern coast of South America and in Brazil but now extinct.
They are accomodated in the typical hut made of palm tree leaves, the woman is occupied with the child while the men look at them from an hammock, at the center there is a fire with something cooking over.
