This is from one of the 17th century globes in the Museo Coreo in St Mark’s Square in Venice. I took a lot of photographs of what I could find on what are basically hard to read 17th century globes.
These things fascinate me. They are remarkably beautiful but simple illustrations which you find on a lot of maps and globes of the era. We don’t put much effort into making our tools look beautiful these days I think.
