Fine art print.
Features a giant water lily (Victoria Regia). The first published description of the giant water lily was by John Lindley in 1837, based on specimens returned from British Guiana by Robert Schomburgk. Lindley named the genus after the new Queen, Victoria, and the species Victoria regia. The giant leaf is up to 3 m (9.8 ft) in diameter, on a stalk 7–8 m (22.9-26.2 ft) in length.
Based on a lithograph made in the mid 1800s by Louis van Houtte., which we have carefully restored and enhanced.
