1730 Homann Israel (Terra Sancta)
This superlative facsimile of the highly decorative original antique hand colored copperplate engraved map of “Terra Sancta” or the Holy Land by Johann Baptist Homann [1663-1724] circa 1730. Homann was engraver and geographer to the Kaiser of the Holy Roman Empire and member of the Prussian Royal Academy of Science, is a classic example from the school of German cartographers. This map is embellished with double cartouches, one of which shows Moses receiving the Ten Commandments on the mountain. Of special interest is the delineation of the 12 tribes of Israel by delicate hand coloring.

What is a Mirrored Print & Gallery Wrap?
Canvas for Gallery Wrap
Take a good look at your print. The edges are mirrored, so that, the complete image is shown on the face of the frame once it is wrapped. In other words, You don’t lose any of the artwork. Our 2½” mirrored borders, allow your finished product to have a variety of thickness up to 2” deep. Therefore, make sure you choose an experienced framer who can make the frame to the exact specs of your custom print.
Hand-made Rattan Frames
Though the design has changed over the years, we commission these Rattan frames through a small family owned company in The Philippines. Your frame is the result of trial and error of the last 20 years! Rattan is a vine-like Palm that requires forest cover in order to thrive. Rattan grows throughout the jungle for over a quarter of a mile. Its trunk can span a diameter of over two inches down to the thickness of a human hair. The harvester’s collection process is performed by hand by a simple machete. Ultimately, the rattan vine cannot survive without the forest. Rattan quickly regenerates. As a result, this method of harvesting protects the destruction of the forest.
