Map Mercator Belgian tapestry is rich with history. The original was made in 1630 by Henricus Hondius (1596 - 1651), in five languages (Dutch, English, German, French and Latin). The four individuals depicted in the map are Julius Caesar (top left), Claudius Ptolemy (top right), Gerard Mercator (bottom left) and Jodocus Hondius (his father, bottom right). The four scenes outside the globes represent the four elements (Ignis, Aer, Agua and Terra). Fire, Air, Water and Earth.
We love our Map Mercator tapestry. It is well made and came quicker than expected. I ordered the fold tassels and the go well with the map. The colors are true to what is shown on the website. When you mount it to the wall be sure to measure where the break in the material is for the mid section support. Ours was not centered, and as a result, the center support pushes the tapestry unnaturally high.

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
