Photo's description:
The Fra Mauro map (mappa mundi) is a map of the world made around 1450 by the Italian (Venetian) cartographer Fra Mauro, which is considered the greatest memorial of medieval cartography. The map depicts Asia, Africa and Europe. The Fra Mauro world map is unusual, but typical of Fra Mauro's portolan charts, in that its orientation is with the south at the top.
The map is very large – the full frame measures 2.4 by 2.4 metres.
