Garden Spider Zoological Poster - Araneus didematus

The Science:

Found across Europe and North America, the European Garden Spider - also known as the Cross or Diadem Spider - is a common orb-weaver. One of the best-known spiders, it has spotted white markings on its abdomen that resemble a cross. It has eight eyes, with four grouped closely at the middle of the face and a pair to either side. The male has longer legs (in ratio to body size) than the female, who has a larger abdomen. Pictured at the upper left is a female spinning a web, at center on the web is a female spider, at lower left a male, and around these are anatomical and other details. This is one of a wonderful series of Scientific German Educational Charts, created in the 1950s and 60s and still produced by the original printer, internationally recognized for producing educational science charts since 1929. These charts are issued today using the original film and same methods as the first printing. They are printed without inscription for both classroom study and decorative purposes, with special attention paid to botanical detail and scientific accuracy.

The Story:

Mounted on linen canvas stretched on wooden rods for display, each measures 44.5 inches tall by 32.25 inches wide (85 cm x 120 cm), and comes with a nylon cord strung through the top wooden rod for easy hanging. Each comes securely rolled and will be shipped to you in a sturdy mailing tube. These lovely botanical posters are large, colorful and impressive pieces of science decor. Add a touch of vintage classroom style to your home today!
