Why we love this
Engraving of the great hornbill of the Island of Panay (Femelle du Calao, de l'Isle Panay). The engraver is Francois Nicolas Martinet (1760-1800), one of the great ornithological artists of 18th-century France.The hornbill is native to South and Southeast Asia. Its impressive size and colour have made it important in many tribal cultures and rituals. Unframed.
