Orchid Botanical Poster - Orchis species
There are well over 20,000 accepted species of orchids worldwide. They can be found in nearly every habitat, with some of the most extravagant and beautiful species found mainly in the tropics. Orchids are used in perfumes, traditional medicines, and food - one of the most recognizable members of the Orchid family is Vanilla. The illustrated specimen is from the genus Orchis, occurring across Eurasia and Northwest Africa. Also shown is a bumblebee, and many orchids have evolved into complex relationships with pollinating insects. 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.
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!
