This is a wonderful original vintage travel poster issued by SAS in the 1950's to promote their flights to India.
The poster is designed by Otto Nielsen who did a lot of work for SAS from the late 40s to the 70s.
A wonderful rendering by Nielsen depicting a monkey holding an orange, probably a Tufted gray langur. Tufted gray langurs are found in southeast India and Sri Lanka. In Sri Lanka, these primates are abundant in dry zone forests and also within human dwellings.
In a SAS calendar from 1955 you find the same image.
The poster is in great condition. Light wear and a small tear is repaired. Mounted on linen.
