Steller's Sea Cow

27 x 19 cm (10.6 x 7.4 inches)
Stellersche Seekuh
An extinct herbivorous marine mammal of the North Pacific Ocean. Within 27 years of discovery by Europeans, the slow-moving and easily captured Steller's sea cow was hunted to extinction

This antique lithograph was made in about 1910 and is in excellent condition. It is from a rare set of collecting cards about dinosaurs, prehistoric animals and strange animals, Tiere der Urwelt (animals of the prehistoric world) by Heinrich Harder. On the back is text about the animal by the naturalist Wilhelm Bölsche. They remain some of the most intriguing images of dinosaurs and prehistoric animals and are still referred to. Harder is well known for his murals of extinct creatures at Berlin Zoo, and was art professor at Berlin University.
