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.
