This is a lovely engraving published titled "The Maggot-Bearing Stapelia". It depicts the beautiful plant with animals surrounding it such as bugs and a snake. This engraving appears to be the second state of two engravings. The second state had the clouds removed and the mountains look rocky. In addition, there is a label on the back from the Donald Heald Fine Art Gallery NY, NY and was "Artwork for Ritz-Carlton, Ameila Island". The engraving has a lovely gold frame and under glass. This engraving would look great in your home or office!
The engraving is in very good condition under glass. There is a small tear to the bottom left side but it is hard to see under the glass. (pictured) There is some minor foxing. The frame shows some visible wear/tear such as scratches. It was opened at one time.
The frame measures approximately 34" x 29 1/4". The sight size is approximately 20 1/2" x 15 1/2".
