The kangaroo (Macropus sp.) is one of the most famous and fascinating animals in the world. It is also one of the largest, with some species reaching over two meters in height and 90 kilograms in weight. Kangaroos belong to the family Macropodidae, which means “large foot”, and have powerful hind legs, large feet, and a long tail that help them balance and move. Kangaroos can hop at speeds of up to 56 kilometers per hour and leap up to nine meters in a single bound. ¹ Kangaroos are herbivores and mainly eat grasses, herbs, and shrubs. They live in groups called mobs or troops, and communicate with each other using sounds, body language, and scent. Kangaroos are also marsupials, which means they have a pouch on their belly where they carry and nurse their young, called joeys. A newborn joey is only about the size of a grape, and crawls into the pouch right after birth. It stays there for several months until it is ready to explore the outside world. ²

This product is a digital reproduction of a vintage lithograph illustration of the kangaroo, created by a skilled artist using the lithography method. Lithography is a planographic printing process that makes use of the immiscibility of grease and water. ³ The artist draws the image on a flat stone or metal plate with a greasy substance, then treats the surface with acid and gum arabic to make the non-image areas water-receptive and the image areas ink-receptive. The inked plate is then pressed onto paper or another material to produce the print. Lithography was invented in 1796 by Alois Senefelder and was widely used for artistic and commercial purposes in the 19th and 20th centuries. ⁴

This illustration captures the beauty and charm of the kangaroo with fine details and vivid colors.
