This sea monster map was influenced by the famous Carta Marina. We can see that Olaus's sea monsters inspired this very precise map of Iceland by Ortelius which was made around 1590. Available as a map alone or ready to hang in our gorgeous box framed canvas. This fantastic map is a delight to look at. The sea monsters are impressive but the map also details mountains, glaciers, fjords, and a rather large illustration of Mount Hekla erupting with a note from Ortelius in Latin: “Hekla, forever condemned to storms and of snow, vomits stones with a terrible sound”.

This map is recognized as being the most precise map of Iceland of its time. It is a true work of art that you will love.
