  • Frederick Seibel (1886 - 1969)
  • 28 x 43 inches ~ (71 x 109 cm)
  • Linen backed

    Linen backing is the industry standard of conservation. Canvas is stretchered and a sheet of acid free barrier paper is laid down. The poster is then pasted to the acid free paper using an acid free paste. This process is fully reversible and gives support to the poster. A border of linen is left around the poster and can be used by a framer to mount the poster so that nothing touches the poster itself.

    The price of this poster includes linen backing.

  • Featuring a rarely seen phenomenon called "moonbow", a rainbow seen at night, which is a signature of Victoria Falls, located on the Zambezi River bordering Zambia and Zimbabwe.

    Named in honor of Queen Victoria of Britain when discovered by the Scottish missionary and explorer, David Livingstone, Victoria Fall is the world’s largest waterfall with a width of 5604 feet and height of 354 feet.

    In Lozi, it is called Mosi-oa-Tunya, "the Smoke That Thunders”, or Seongo or Chongwe, the "Place of Rainbow”. From its constant spray, rainbows are commonly seen. At full moon, one can see the phenomenon of “moonbow”.
