As a part of the Crustacea family, the two stand out crabs of this High-Quality Giclee Print are the Atelecyclus septemdentatus and the Cancer ruricola. The Atelecyclus septemdentatus is found on the west coast of Europe and Africa, and as its name suggests it has 7 sharp teeth. The Cancer ruricola is part of the Carribean land crab family.
Even if you choose this print for its visual quality only, you will enjoy the rich reds and calming tan as well as the details on the individual crabs. This magnificent illustration is only one of over 500 from the 19th century work of a French naturalist and zoologist baron Georges Cuvier, named “The Animal Kingdom, arranged according to its organization, serving as a foundation for the natural history of animals: and an introduction to comparative anatomy”.
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.
