Vintage Framed Gold Foil Blaeu Wall Map of Old and New World 24"x20".
Framed & Matted Gold Foil Blaeu Wall Map of Old & New WorldThis picture is a
genuine metal etching imported from England. It's a fine print made directly on
a metal foil surface and bonded with artist wax to a heavy backing. The image
was hand etched by a master engraver into an etching block. The print was then
embossed under 50 tons of pressure creating depth and brilliance. The light
reflecting at different angles makes the subject seem almost life-like. The
metal etching changes appearance with the direction of light, keeping it
forever new and interesting. It will be like a rainbow, never appearing the
same way twice.The map is enriched with a border of eleven portraits across the
top. Pope Innocent XIth is in the centre, while the horsemen depict all the
reigning monarchs of the day including Charles II of Spain, Johannes III of
Poland, Louis XIV of France and the Sultan of Turkey, with whom the West was at
that time, at war.
At left side and middle area looks like the foil it's not stretched all the
way, you got to look closely i can not capture in pictures!!
