Proa Of Satawal Archipel Des Carolines
Dumont d Urville
Drawing - Antique Print
From our extensive collection of Antique Maps, Prints and Photos of Guam and Micronesia; from the Folio Collection of prints from the Dumont d Urville voyage of the L'Astrolabe. Louis Auguste de Sainson was the official artist on board. This archival reproduction of the original circa 1835 print in our collection. Beautiful hand-colored rendering of the original print showing a Proa from the island of Satawal. The European explorers marveled at the speed and navigation of these vessels. Plate 180 in the folio collection. (NOTE: Since this is high resolution reproduction of the original antique print from 1835, there are some small natural areas of coloration in the print, which are typical of a 200 year old print and are to be expected.) When matted and framed prints such as this are an exquisite print for home or office decor.
