Giant World Map Featured World Print

Giant World Map

This extra-large map of the world is based on the Mercator Projection and is ideal for both business and educational purposes, or even simply as a stunning wall display. The exceptionally clear format shows political boundaries with each country depicted in a different vibrant colour to its immediate neighbours. The world map is further enhanced by coloured relief and ocean depth depictions, thus adding a striking textured effect and providing an element of physical representation to this political map. International time zones are depicted along the bottom of the map. Cities are depicted in five population bands, and the map also shows principal roads and railways, international boundaries (indicating those which are disputed) as well as state boundaries within countries. Capital cities of both countries and states are displayed, and international airports and seaports are shown

The Creation of the World and the Expulsion from Paradise 1445 Featured World Print

The Creation of the World and the Expulsion from Paradise 1445

The masterpiece was painted by Giovanni di Paolo (Giovanni di Paolo di Grazia). It represents a vision of Paradise reminiscent of that described by the great Florentine poet Dante in "The Divine Comedy." The universe is shown as a celestial globe, with the earth at the center surrounded by a series of concentric circles representing first the four elements, the known planets (including the sun, in accordance with medieval and Renaissance cosmology), and finally the constellations of the zodiac. Presiding over the scene of Creation is God the Father, bathed in a glowing celestial light as he is borne aloft by seraphim. Beside the "mappamondo" (map of the world) is the garden of Paradise, its four rivers issuing from the ground at the lower right. The garden's effulgent flora symbolize the pure and sinless state of man before the Fall. A diminutive Adam and Eve are expelled from the garden by a lithe angel whose unusual nakedness and human form may symbolize his deep compassion for the corrupted state of humankind after the fall from grace
