Swiss Family Tree Poster

Switzerland, 1885
21 x 29 in (53 x 74 cm)
ID #SWISSDRAWER-Z-27

Vintage Swiss poster, showing a family's impressively sprawling family tree. The family tree is presented with pious, Christian undertones: to the right and left of the trees, scrolled on the banners, are excerpts from the bible (Deuteronomy 32.7 and Psalm 37.25).

"Gedenke der porigen Zeiten bis daher & betrachte mas der Berr gethan hatan den alten Datern. Mofes 32.7" (Remember the days of old, consider the years long past; ask your father, and he will inform you; your elders, and they will tell you. Deuteronomy 32.7) "Ich bin jung gewesen und bin alt geworden und habe noch nie gesehen den Berechten verlaken noch seinen Samen nach Brod gehn." (I was young and now I’m old, but I have never seen the righteous left all alone, have never seen their children begging for bread. Psalm 37.25)
