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 the
Antarctic. 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 reproductions are handmade in our Los Angeles studio, using only high resolution files printed on archival cotton weave canvas. They are twice varnished with a Polymer gloss that ensures UV protection and enhances the colors. Decorative wood is assembled on the top and bottom, with two eye-hooks mounted on the top piece. We also supply a jute rope that can be attached between the two eye-hooks to give the map that old pull down map feel.
