Product Description
African Mammals Dioramas Coloring Book
Considered one of the greatest museum displays in the world, the Akeley Hall of African Mammals at the American Museum of Natural History in New York City offers unique glimpses of African wildlife, from hippos wallowing in the Nile to wildebeest grazing on the Serengeti.

In the early twentieth century, the Museum brought public attention to wildlife and habitat conservation through groundbreaking dioramas. Many of the new techniques were developed by Carl Akeley, the taxidermist, explorer, conservationist, sculptor, and nature photographer who first conceived of this hall in 1909. Each diorama recreates a specific site at a particular time of day, based on the meticulous observations of scientists, artists, and photographers in the field.

The mountain gorilla diorama represents another of Akeley’s living legacies. The location depicted here is protected as part of the Democratic Republic of Congo’s Virunga National Park, which was established in 1925 by King Albert I of Belgium thanks in part to Akeley’s advocacy.

The American Museum of Natural History in New York City is one of the world’s preeminent scientific, educational, and cultural institutions, drawing millions of visitors each year. Visit amnh.org for more information.
