A stunning and very rare original vintage travel poster promoting Rhodesia as a travel destination with the slogan: Zimbabwe - The Riddle of Rhodesia? centuries have passed...
The Queen of Sheba hoovers wraith-like near Zimbabwe's tower. The ruins of Great Zimbabwe – the capital of the Queen of Sheba, according to an age-old legend – are a unique testimony to the Bantu civilization of the Shona between the 11th and 15th centuries.
The name "Zimbabwe" stems from a Shona term for Great Zimbabwe, an ancient ruined city in the country's south-east whose remains are now a protected site. It is recognized as a World Heritage site by UNESCO.
In almost good condition. Expertly repaired tears at top edge, into image. Small tears and losses in the margins. Tape stains. Mounted on linen. Will look stunning framed.
