Framed Antique Map of the World

Surrounded by fabulous and ornately detailed scenes, this is probably the most decorative of Bible maps. The classic scenes depict the abduction of Persephone, Zeus being carried across the heavens in a chariot led by eagles, Poseidon leading his entourage, and Demeter receiving the fruits of the Earth. California is depicted as an island.  A small island in the vicinity of Alaska is labeled Anian. In Asia, the Great Wall of China is evident and the northeastern coastline is shortened. A very ornate and decorative map over 300 years old.
This is one of the most beautiful maps published due to its incredible design.
