Cultnat has issued a series of postcards that commemorate Egypt s natural heritage that feature the sketches of the country s animals, flora and fauna. The drawings are compelling in their dedication to detail. Nature does not pose motionless for any artist. It s apparent that the artists spent hours observing the animals in their natural habitat to capture them on paper, or closely studying a flower to portray its delicacy.

The series include the Arabian Rose, a rare, fragrant flower that grows only in the region of St. Catherine in South Sinai; the Cheetah, almost extinct but a few still survive in the Qattara Depression; the long-eared hedgehog which lives in gardens but rolls into a tight, spiny ball when it s under threat; and the Hume s Tawny Owl, a resident breeder that lives in the mountains and canyons of the Sinai and Eastern deserts.
