3 Panel HD Printed Antique Decorative World Map Canvas Wall Art

3 Panel HD Printed Antique Decorative World Map Canvas Wall Art

Ornately decorated and beautifully coloured, this world map epitomises the baroque style favoured during the Golden Age of Dutch cartography. The original map was prepared in 1630 by Henricus Hondius and published the following year in the atlas Atlantis Maioris Appendix.

The distinguishing feature of this map, is the lush ornamentation outside of the two spheres. Vignettes above and below the spheres symbolise the four elements of fire, air, water, and land. In the four corners, there are portraits of Julius Caesar because he ordered a survey of the Roman Empire, the second-century (A.D.) geographer Claudius Ptolemy, and the atlas's first two publishers, Gerard Mercator and Jodocus Hondius. In the lower center inset, there is a depiction of the four continents, with the personified Asia, America, and Africa paying tribute to Europe, a theme that was repeated many times on atlas title pages and the marginal map decorations during this time period.

This replica is printed on high quality craft material this canvas is a wonderful addition to your home or office space.
