A quite silly poster featuring an okapi during the laundry.

I believe the poster is a advertisement for the Polish stage play "Okapi" which was written in 1909 by Stanisław Grochowiak. Interestingly, the okapi (the animal) was discovered just a few years before the play was written - discovering such a large animal this late in history was quite a sensation. Perhaps this is why the stage play was named Okapi.

As far as I can understand from translating the Polish resume of the play, there is no exact okapi but the term is used to describe a woman as "agility and elasticity of the antelope, the giraffe's dignity, the vigilance and agility of the horse with the exotic beauty of the zebra".

Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
