The Explorers Club is proud to release this limited edition printed poster, celebrating the finding of Ernest Shackleton's legendary ship Endurance in Antarctic waters. Featuring stunning original artwork, only 150 prints will be made.
Led by Club Member Ernest Shackleton, Endurance set off in 1914 for the Antarctic Circle as part of the Imperial Trans-Antarctic Expedition. Eventually, disaster struck when the ship became trapped in pack ice and, nearly a year later, sank in the Weddell Sea off Antarctica on November 21st, 1915. Shackleton led his crew to safety, using the ship's boats to travel to Elephant Island, resulting in an incredible story of bravery and survival.
106 years later, on March 5th, 2022, the wreck of Endurance was found by search team Endurance22, carrying Explorers Club Flag #35. Endurance lies 9,869 feet deep, and has been designated as a protected historic site.
The Endurance Found Poster features original artwork commissioned by The Explorers Club, based on an iconic image of Endurance taken on-site. An original daguerreotype, taken by expedition photographer Frank Hurley, now hangs at The Explorers Club Headquarters in New York City. Now, your Endurance poster can hang in your home, office – or captain's quarters!
