A Burchell's zebra rests on the Athi Plains of Kenya in this photograph by Carl E. Akeley, drawn from the archives of National Geographic. A conservationist, nature photographer and inventor, Akeley made several expeditions to Africa-including one with Theodore Roosevelt in 1909- and was considered the father of modern taxidermy. Out of a deep desire to preserve Africa's wilderness and protect the animals, he helped to establish the first national park on that continent. 44 1/2"W x 52 1/2"H overall. A fine giclee print of a photograph by famed conservationist Carl E. Akeley (1864-1926). Sourced from the archives of National Geographic. Mounted behind Plexiglas with a white mat. Glossy espresso frame. Ready to hang, with D rings and wire at the back. A Williams-Sonoma Home exclusive.
