Renaissance culture was highly appreciative of the concept of the universal man. Studying and mastering multiple disciplines was admired. Petrus Plancius was such a man. He was both a practicing theologian and a skilled cartographer. He became a minister in Amsterdam in 1585 and also became famous as an astronomer. Plancius made his famous large size wall map of the known world in 1592. An incredible effort and one of the most decorative and detailed maps ever made. Updated with the latest discoveries? Interestingly, this map shows empty cartouches, as Plancius was probably still trying to get a royal sponsorship for his work when this print was made. Our giclee print wall map is printed on waterproof fabric and hangs from lightly distressed French finished wood slats. Original in the Bibliotheque nationale de France
