Another great example of the wonderful combination between what was primarily intended to be a teaching tool, but became a decorative object.
This particular chart shows the freshwater polyp, better known as Hydra. The Hydra is a genus of small, simple, fresh-water animals that possess radial symmetry. The Hydra are actually predatory animals They can be found in most unpolluted fresh-water ponds, lakes, and streams in the temperate and tropical regions and can be found by gently sweeping a collecting net through weedy areas. They are multicellular organisms which are usually a few millimetres long and are best studied with a microscope. Biologists are especially interested in Hydra due to their regenerative ability; and that they appear not to age or to die of old age.
All the charts by Jung, Koch and Quentell have different qualities that appeal to a wide selection of people. They fit perfectly in any home, office or kids room.
