Description

A beautifully engraved map of the ancient land of Canaan which roughly corresponds to present-day Israel. Cherubs hold up a draped cloth of key symbols, also a scale panel in the sea area and below are panels showing scenes from the life of Christ either side of an ornate title cartouche.
The figures and decorations are painted in a somewhat impressionistic way. Varnish is used for the dark shadow areas to highlight the colours. Clearly from an show-piece bible produced for a wealthy merchant or nobleman.
