"Mammoth Tree 'Beauty of the Forest'"
Published by United States Senate, 1856
Printed by Lahaina Printsellers, Ltd., 2016
This superb reproduction of an original stone lithograph, colored by a later hand, was published in 1856 by the U.S. Senate. It was the result of a survey done by the U. S. Pacific Railroad to explore and determine the most practical route for a railroad running from the Mississippi River to the Pacific Ocean.
In this view, a giant Sequoia is shown in all its magnificent glory. Unfortunately, precious few of these beautiful old growth trees still exist as they did in earlier times, as most have either died or long since been harvested.
We custom-print this facsimile on waterproof canvas in our Lahaina studio using the finest archival inks, which are tested and guaranteed not to fade or shift under normal circumstances for over 100 years. Modern printing techniques allow us to improve and enhance the historical subject matter, even as we're careful to preserve and maintain its historical and artistic integrity.
