Creature Dinosaur Extinct Hamburg Harder Heinrich Mastodon Oligocene Pleistocene Prehistoric Tiere Tusk Urwelt Mammut


EDITORS COMMENTS
This chromolithograph illustration, titled "Mastodon" by the renowned German artist and book illustrator, Heinrich Harder, showcases the majestic presence of one of the most iconic extinct mammals of the prehistoric world. The Mastodon, a member of the extinct genus Mammut, is depicted in all its grandeur, with its massive body covered in thick fur, two long curved tusks, and small, pointed ears. Heinrich Harder, born in 1858, was a prolific artist and illustrator, best known for his landscapes and natural history illustrations. His work, "Tiere der Urwelt" or "Animals of the Prehistoric World," published in 1916 in Hamburg, Germany, is a testament to his exceptional talent and dedication to bringing the creatures of the past to life. The Mastodon, a large tusked mammal, roamed the Earth during the Oligocene and Pleistocene epochs, around 23 million to 10,000 years ago. These creatures were among the largest land animals ever to have existed, with some reaching up to 11 feet tall at the shoulder and weighing as much as 14 tons. The Mastodon's tusks, which could grow up to 12 feet long, were not only used for defense but also for digging up roots and other vegetation. This illustration, with its intricate details and vibrant colors, offers a glimpse into the past, transporting us back to a time when these magnificent creatures roamed the Earth. This illustration, a masterpiece from the annals of history, is a reminder of the rich diversity of life that has existed on our planet and serves as a testament to the artistic talent and dedication of Heinrich Harder.
