This luxurious piece of coastal wall decor was originally published by German marine biologist Ernst Haeckel in “Kunstformen der Natur” in 1904 and depicts an orange octopus on an aged white background. Haeckel was known for his incredibly realistic depictions of creatures and plants in nature, including sea life. Our artists were inspired by the unique texture of the octopus and enhanced the image by adding an aged white background which reminds the viewer of the image’s origins. All of these factors come together to create a piece of wall art that enthusiasts of fine art and undersea life will surely love.
At Vintage Print Gallery, we do our best to offer the most interesting, sophisticated and unique pieces of art to our loyal customers. While many of our offerings come from painstakingly collected antiques, such as hundreds of years old atlases, photo albums and herbariums, we have also gone a step further and now offer remastered pieces, as well as original art. Our original art takes inspiration from our existing catalog and builds on it. Our remastered pieces bring new colorways, sharper images and more intricate details from restored vintage works of art. Additionally, we also offer silver, gold and copper leaf enhanced art, with real metal applied to the prints.
