Vintage Holly Art Print

“The holly and the ivy, when they are both full grown, Of all the trees that are in the wood, the holly bears the crown.”  -- Traditional English folk song

Around 200 B.C.E. the Druids of northern Europe used Holly as a reminder of spring and the renewal of life. The Romans, who liked to throw wild parties, offered Holly to Saturn for good luck.  Although rooted in pagan ritual, the Holly was adopted by early Christians to avoid persecution as well as to drive away evil spirits. 

Today, the Holly symbolizes peace and joy - and a wild part or two.

Love my bird print

No problems. It looks great. I had my own frame. Very nice paper.

Great Print

The print is beautiful I was a little concerned about the lack of email confirmations, but overall delivered on time and looks great!

Audubon Ruddy Duck Print

An excellent product for the price in an open-edition decorator print, on high quality paper and vivid colors. I would buy it again!

Bird pictures

I love the four bird pictures I bought! Very high quality

Charting Nature at its best!

High quality prints. Perfect weight of print for framing beautifully. Charting Nature has always delivered prints timely and without any problems. Bought several different nature prints for our lake house and they fit in perfectly. In fact they’re so nice they would also fit in beautifully in a more formal home too.
