Arenga and Nypa
Chromolithograph, von Martius (1823-37)
Elegant illustration was drawn by the renowned naturalist Carl Friedrich Philipp von Martius, published in his work “Historia Naturalis Palmarum” (volume 3, table 108, below). The illustration represents a landscape, not far from the eastern coast of the Island of Java, where coexist fruiting individuals of Arenga pinnata, the well-known sugar palm today widely cultivated, and groups of Nypa fruticans, a peculiar species and only representative of one of the six subfamilies of palm trees.
