There are a number of British aircraft with names that don't exactly convey speed or elegance. "Mosquito" comes to mind, as does "Walrus," the subject of this fine painting by Koike. Despite this plane's ungainly appearance, it was reinforced for catapult launches, and could actually be looped. This excellent work gives the viewer's eye plenty to do, as Koike has painstakingly recreated the aircraft's delicate rigging and engine detail with almost photographic precision.
This print is reproduced on heavy art board just like the original, and sized identical to the original, measuring 400mm x 315mm (15.75 x 12.4 inches). It's offset printed, and the color reproduction has been approved by Koike himself. The art board measures 625mm x 453mm (24.6 x 17.83), giving you the freedom to have it framed as you would like. Each print is packed in a special sleeve inside a sturdy cardboard shipping box designed especially to prevent bending during international shipping (NOTE: These prints cannot be combined with other items for shipping, except for additional art prints; they will be shipped separately in their special packaging, even if ordered together with other items).
