This is one of a series of attractive posters created in the mid 1950's by Otto Neilsen for Scandinavian Airlines System (SAS) . In this poster we see a group of beautiful Zebras, symbolic of the animals to be found on the African continent.
Otto Nielsen (1916-2000) was an accomplished painter who dedicated much of his career to studying the people and animals of different regions. He illustrated many travel books outside his career at SAS. Nielsen created posters as well as calendars and other promotional material for SAS for nearly 50 years.
