Old world cartographers made map making an art form. Here a fine work of art has been translated into textile form. It features the work of Hernicus Hondius a Dutch engraver, cartographer, and publisher. Originally published in 1630 this design displays portraits of Julius Caesar, Claudius Ptolemy, Jodocus Hondius, Henricus father, and Gerardus Mercator. On the map, we also see the four elements of earth, fire, air, and water in all their glory. This wall tapestry is the perfect piece to bring a nostalgic feel to any office or den!
