Woodcut, Edouard André (1878)

This beautiful piece has been digitized and restored from the engraving published in “L’Illustration horticole: journal spécial des serres et des jardins” (volume 25), based on a drawing from “Voyage au Tour du Monde” by Edouard André. This botanical illustration conveyed to the European reader, back in the day, the sensation that the traveler experienced when he found in the Cocora Valley (Colombia) the Quindó wax palm, the tallest palmtree in the world and the second plant only behind the sequoias. Note the tiny size of the indigenous people who move among them on the back of a donkey.
