Map of Paris 
This world map tapestry "Map of Paris" shows the work of artist Georg Braun from 1572. Braun was the chief editor of the Great City Atlas, the Civitate Orbis Terrarum, together with engraver Franz Hogenberg, produced the work which contained 546 birds eye view map from cities all over the world. They were assisted by Abraham Ortelius, whose famous work, Theatrum Orbis Terrarum of 1570 was considered the world's first true atlas. Paris, the capital of France, nestled on the river Seine, was thought to originate around 4200 BC by settlement of the Parisii, a sub tribe of the Celtic Semones. There is a rich history of the city, including occupation by the Burgundians and the eventual reclaimation by Charles VII and later Charles IX in 1572, when this work was created. The work is a remarkable achievement by map makers in the 16th century. This world map tapestry "Map of Paris" is backed with a lining and has a tunnel for easy hanging. Note: rods and tassels, where pictured, are not included in the price.

Ordered a tapestry to very short timescales just before Christmas... not expecting to receive before the New Year. Extremely surprised when it arrived just before Christmas during all the really snowy weather

...& even more surprised at the high quality of the tapestry. I am now about to place an order for another tapestry for my daughter's 18th birthday.

Highly recommended!
