Oil on original 1951 letterhead from Taronga zoo applied to canvas.

Description

This original 1951 letter from Taronga zoo has such an interesting slice of natural history. I've tried to preserve that by not painting over the text and letting that glorious letterhead guide my composition. Ready to hang but personally I'd get it framed under glass to protect that letter.
