This rare and colorful beauty of a poster was originally intended to be a part of the SAS calendar of 1961 with the theme of "The great discoveries of the world" by the famous Danish artist Otto Nielsen.

Roald Amundsen (1872-1928) was a Norwegian explorer of polar regions. He led the Antarctic expedition (1910–12) to become the first men to reach the South Pole in December 1911. In 1926, he was the first expedition leader to be recognized without dispute as having reached the North Pole. He is also known as the first to traverse the Northwest Passage (1903–06). He disappeared in June 1928 while taking part in a rescue mission. Amundsen, Douglas Mawson, Robert Falcon Scott, and Ernest Shackleton were key expedition leaders during the Heroic Age of Antarctic Exploration.

Since they come as individual posters they are much more beautiful (no waste of paper for the calendar dates) and easier to frame and hang on the wall. The poster is in perfect condition and is in a great thick paper quality which measures 15.9 x 11.6 in (40.5 x 29.5 cm).

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