A masterpiece of Venetian mapmaking

Paolo Forlani made this map during the best times of Venetian mapmaking. This was a time when several mapmakers were working out of Venice. You can see what the European knowledge of the world was like in the 16th century. Japan sits somewhere in the middle of the Pacific. France, Spain and Great Britain were competing in North America.They did not explore Canada yet and Forlani’s map doesn’t give us any clues about what lies inside. The mountain ranges are based on guessing and there are very few place names. Similar goes for other parts of the world. The unknown places are often populated with imaginary creatures.Some animals included in this colourful world map are a camel, an elephant, a lion, and a rhinoceros. The most outlandish creatures are the griffin and the unicorn. These two animals have been associated with various legends throughout history.Amongst the places that haven’t yet been discovered are also Australia, New Zealand, and Antarctica. Instead of Antarctica, there is a large continent named Terra incognita.

Is the map a good fit for your wall?

The map size is 140 cm x 87 cm (54"‘ x 34"), so it is a good size for most walls. We hand-carved the frame from ancient chestnut wood and add bronze nails to it. The frame also has hidden iron hangers.We print the map in high resolution with a handmade antique finish on durable cotton canvas. The canvas has been accurately and originally distorted on the left and right vertical edges. The colours of the map are beautiful, and it is a great way to add some interest to your home décor.

The item was done quicker than I expected, and was shipped quickly, and arrived even quicker. The quality of this map can not be understated. It's absolutely beautiful and I will definitely be purchasing from this seller again, as well as recommending them to everyone. They kept me informed every step of the way, and were extremely easy to deal with. If I could give this a ten out of ten instead of a five out of five I absolutely would. I can't rave enough about the product or the seller. Amazing.
