Click on the link above to view an animated slide show of the 59 etchings from the Martius-Spix expedition to Brazil. The etchings were created by Karl von Martius, expedition leader. They were digitally colored on Photoshop by Carol Miranda Chor and Alberto Chor. These etchings display the various regions and habitats of Brazil in 1817.

The explorers were Naturalists and recorded all of the details of the scenery that they illustrated with scientific drawings of the plants, animals and people. These etchings will raise your Eco awareness. If a picture is worth a thousand words, think what these thousands of images will teach you !
