This is a spectacular original vintage travel poster issued by Hamburg-Amerika Linie to promote a 1958 cruise by the ship Ariadne to the Norwegian fjords.
The rendering by Ottomar Anton depicts the white cruise ship TS Ariadne deep inside a Norwegian fjord surrounded by steep mountains, snowcapped peaks and large waterfalls.
It is possible the artist has done a free interpretation of the Geirangerfjord and the Seven Sisters Waterfall. The legend of the seven sisters is that they dance playfully down the mountain. Meanwhile, across the fjord, the suitor (or courter) flirts playfully with them from afar.
In excellent condition.
