Beautiful school poster depicting the pygmy hippopotamus from the series of educative posters approved by the Ministry of education in 1945 as the teaching aids suitable for all kinds of elementary and high schools. The text with the description of the animal is illustrated by black and white picture by a great Czech zoologist and photographer Václav Jan Staňek, who is also the author of many books and one of our first film documentaries of natural science. His photographs with their esthetic qualities definitely go beyond a simply educational purpose.
