Horse Zoological Poster - Equus caballus

The Science:

From a complex evolutionary tree that saw the spread of horses across the entire Northern Hemisphere, the genus Equus has declined to just a handful of species including Asses and Zebras. Humans have raised and bred horses as draft animals and livestock for thousands of years. The Horse has been instrumental in the development of many cultures as primary means of transportation and for mounted warfare, and it is only really in the last century that it has been replaced for these purposes by the internal combustion engine. The horse is a widely beloved creature and is still regarded as a symbol of wealth, nobility, and strength. 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!
