The Old World at your fingertips, emblematic of 17th century science. Uniting precious bronze with hardwood and hand applied paper gores on a papier-mâché core. As with every other AM piece, there's a story behind the object...The legendary cartographer Jodocus Hondius worked in Amsterdam during the 1600s, then one of the world’s commercial hubs. Think galleons sailing oceans to the farthest corners of the then known world. Imagine exotic cultures, languages, people and goods to be traded, bought and sold. Gold and ivory, spices and silks fill the marketplace. Spin the world and enjoy a touch of true history.
