World Map 1680

This 1680 richly embellished map of the world by cartographer Justus Danckers shows four allegorical scenes, representing the four elements. Fire is shown by war, Air by the heavens, Earth by harvesting, and Water by a maritime scene of ships and a whale. Details include California shown as an Island, incomplete coastlines for Australia and New Zealand, and no trace of theAntarctic. There is no coastline north of California, and no land bridge to Asia. The Great Lakes are opened to the west. Groups of figures are shown between the hemispheres and on either side of the smaller polar maps.

Our Map Reproductions are handmade in our Los Angeles studio using heavyweight 23 mil Epson Exhibition Satin Canvas. This elegantly textured canvas features a semi-gloss satin surface that is enhanced with protective elastic polymers. Decorative wood is assembled on the top and bottom, with two eye-hooks mounted on the top piece. We also supply a jute rope twine that can be attached between the two eye-hooks to complete the vintage feel of a roll down canvas scroll.
