Asia Secunda Pars Terrae in Forma Pegasi (Asia in the Form of Pegasus) by Heinrich Bunting (1581).

The horse is drawn quite realistically, so the map itself is not very accurate. The head represents Asia Minor, the wings Central Asia and Siberia. The Caspian Sea appears between the wings and the saddle. The forelegs represent Arabia, and the hind legs represent the Indian and Malay Peninsulas.


All of our reproductions are done on hand-processed paper, illuminated with gold paint and finished with beeswax, giving them a real parchment-like look. Actual colors may vary a bit due to different monitors displaying colors differently. The size of the print is 25x35 cm.

    In case your print creases during the travel, as it usually does travel for some time, you can safely warm it up with a hair-dryer, and the wax will melt back right into it. You can also use a lighter, which is a much faster method, but be careful to keep the flame either above the paper or parallel to it (which means holding the paper vertically) so it doesn't smudge or even catch fire. The chance of the print actually creasing is very small, as they are rolled in bubble-wrap and shipped in a cardboard box. Also, be sure to keep the print out of the direct sunlight, as it can melt or fade.
