Austrian collector and taxidermist Andreas Reischek poses for a formal portrait with one of his dogs. The most famous of these was Caesar. The pair made trips into wild areas of New Zealand in pursuit of birds for Reischek’s collection. Like many men alone in unknown territory, Reischek depended on his dog, and credited Caesar with saving his life on several occasions.
