Ernst Haeckel Art Ocean Animals
Reproduction of 1862 Original Drawings and Watercolors

Radiolarians are an ancient group of single celled organisms that have existed 570 million years ago. They are free swimming protozoa that occur in our world's oceans that possess a spherical or helmet like skeleton.
In 1862, German zoologist Ernst Haeckel began drawing these fascinating other worldly creatures, which are both complex and simple in their microscopic dimensions.

Ernst Haeckel was born in Prussia in 1834. He was a hysician, anatomist, zoologist, naturalist, biologist and artist. He coined the terms phylum, phylogeny and ecology. Although he was trained as a physician, he focused on a career in zoology after reading Charles Darwin's book "Origin of the Species." He studied and illustrated various invertebrates such as sponges, annelids, and radiolarians. He assisted in naming nearly 150 previously undescribed species!
Modern microscopes have given light to the accuracy of Haeckel's world famous prints executed by the artist with utmost delicacy and detail.

The two sided page measures approximately 12.25" long (31.1 cm), 9.25" wide (23.5 cm).
The image is approximately 10.25" long (26 cm), 7.5" wide (19.1 cm).
The second picture is to inspire - see how gorgeous your print may look matted and framed!

The images you see are taken by a digital camera. The book page is not copied or scanned. You will receive the original.
