Details

The second series featuring the Explorers’ First Sightings theme depicts a drawing by Henry Constantine Richter, originally sketched by John Gould. Famed wildlife author John Gould often sought the assistance of talented artis ts, including Richter. Born into a family of artists around 1821, Richter produced hundreds of wildlife illustrations during his career, including all of the lithographs for Gould’s 1845 publication, "The Mammals of A ustralia."

Th e inspiration for this beautiful design was taken from this publication. It captures Richter’s depiction of Western Grey Kangaroos which was taken from a sketch made by Gould on his 1838 journey to Australia.
