Matterhorn travel print The Matterhorn travel print was created with love for the beautiful mountain. This large, near-symmetric pyramidal peak in the extended Monte Rosa area of the Pennine Alps is illustrated in a wonderful keepsake which is a must for any mountain lover.
From the voyage of discovery of Swiss explorer Edward Whymper, The Matterhorn has been a celebrated symbol of adventure and achievement. Whymper faced numerous challenges in his ascent and descent of the mountain, including an almost fatal fall during the second ascent of the Matterhorn. He later described his story as "an epic of mountaineering." The twisted pyramidal peak featured in this charming print is decorated with contemporary shades to remind us that while exploring new heights can prove exciting, it can also be perilous.
The Matterhorn travel print enhances the sharp edges of the mountain, which is reflected in the abstract and artistic treatment of this piece.
This wonderful print comprises the highest summits in Europe. The Matterhorn is shown, straddling the main watershed of the Pennine Alps and defining the border between Switzerland and Italy.
