Here are some Kiwis foraging for their dinner.
This amazing antique engraving is from 1871; the time of the American Civil War.

Kiwi are flightless birds native to New Zealand, in the genus Apteryx and family Apterygidae.
These guys are about the size of a domestic chicken. kKwi are by far the smallest living ratites and lay the largest egg in relation to their body size of any species of bird in the world.
There are five recognised species, all of which are endangered; all species have been adversely affected by historic deforestation but currently large areas of their forest habitat are well protected in reserves and national parks. At present, the greatest threat to their survival is predation by invasive mammalian predators.
The kiwi is a national symbol of New Zealand, and the association is so strong that the term Kiwi is used all over the world as the colloquial demonym for New Zealanders.

'Kiwi' is printed on quality heavy weight paper. It's smooth and flat with just a bit of tanning at the borders that one finds on paper that's 140 years old.
It measures 6.5" x 10" overall and it's blank on the reverse side. The impression is fabulously fresh and detailed, as if it were printed only yesterday. (Zoom in for a closer look; it really is spectacular!)

Matted, framed and displayed as a gallery grouping, these wonderful vintage natural history prints are simply spectacular. (Please note that the framed examples in the last photo are just to show how this might look when it's framed. Your antique print will come unframed.)
