Abraham Ortelius World Wall Map
Abraham Ortelius World Wall Map
Antique map re-print.
The famous map, "Typus Orbis Terrarum" (1570-), was created by Abraham Ortelius and published in his first Atlas.
This map, which combined the most up-to-date knowledge available in the 16th century, had a significant cultural impact. Ortelius used a variety of sources, including Marco Polo's travel reports, Portuguese exploration knowledge, and information brought back by the Spanish, to accurately depict the world. Interestingly, Ortelius included sea monsters on his map for marketing purposes, as maps with these creatures were more popular at the time.
One notable feature of this world map is the depiction of the North Pole as four islands separated by rivers. During Ortelius' time, there was a belief that there was a navigable passage to the Far East through the North Pole, leading to many failed attempts and loss of life.

Love this Osteichthyes (fish) print, definitely my favorite.
Super good quality and looks great, recommend it to anyone who wants to upgrade their home.
My map is here and beautiful. Takk!
The paper is thick, be careful not to fold a corner while unboxing the map, which I did. Thankfully it' now hidden by the frame! The artwork is brilliant, all about natural aspects of the islands.
Absolutely beautiful and is the perfect gift!
I purchased the map to decorate the lobby of our agency.
It adds a nice touch of warmth, and was noticed by a customer on the first day of hanging it up. It's great to start conversations about our beautiful state.
i set out to find a nice map of Hawaii for the office, and believe i've found the best. The only one that's up to date, that you can actually read and the artwork is absolutely gorgeous. Really happy with my order.
Mesmerizing... I love it, thanks!
A stunning map of this incredible place. I purchased this map for my husband who resided in the IOM for 26 years. The detail are amazing and heartwarming. I ordered this map from Canada and this company was exceptional to deal with. Our map arrived in excellent condition and in a timely manner. I would recommend.
Beautiful work. Although I moved out, I still have family in Florida. I love it, thanks!
The detail and quality of the map is amazing so I just had one framed as a gift for my brother's 40th. My brother and I are Manx so it's awesome to see these maps highlighting the hidden gems of the Isle of Man in such detail.
Highly recommend getting it framed.
Wow, impressed with the product quality, the vibrant colors and the artwork. Now we just need to choose the right frame!
Fast delivery, thanks!
The map looks fantastic in my office. Paper and print quality is miles away from usual posters. Looking forward seeing more maps to decorate other areas of the house.
Congratulations To the designer! This map is so beautiful, its a very good memory from Mann.
