Antique World Map Wall Mural
This elaborate map is attributed to Henricus Hondius and first appeared in the 1633 edition of the Mercator-Hondius atlas. It utilizes the revolutionary Mercator projection and shows the world in two hemispheres. This vibrant map is decorated with iconography representing the four elements (fire, air, water, and land), as well as with portraits of Julius Caesar, 2nd-century geographer Claudius Ptolemy, and the atlas's first two publishers: Mercator and Jodocus Hondius.

Available in paper (13' 8" x 8' 3") and in vinyl (various sizes)
