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 Henricus Hondius II, a Dutch engraver, cartographer, and publisher. Initially produced 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!
This quality piece looks great in our dining area

I recently bought our second tapestry from Quality Tapestries. I was not disappointed! The tapestry is good quality. We enjoy the warmth the tapestries add to our bedroom, and the affordable price allows us to change décor with the seasons. I find the web site easy to use, and have several tapestries on my wish list.Denver, CO

This company makes STUNNING tapestries to order. It may take a couple of weeks, but the wait is TOTALLY worth it. The quality is absolutely amazing. I own several antique tapestries, and the quality of these rivals any one of them.Spring, TX
