In 1929 a  map was found. The document was drawn in 1513 by Piri Reis, an admiral of the Turkish fleet in the sixteenth century.  It shows the western coast of Africa, the eastern coast of South America, and the northern coast of Antarctica. The Antarctic coastline is perfectly detailed. The most puzzling however is not so much how Piri Reis managed to draw such an accurate map of the Antarctic region 300 years before it was discovered, but that the map shows the coastline under the ice.

In a group of historians found an amazing map drawn on a gazelle skin. Research showed that it was a genuine document drawn in 1513 by Piri Reis, a famous admiral of the Turkish fleet in the sixteenth century. His passion was cartography.

jessicasuniquegiftshop: In our on going project of collecting vintage and retro art and photographs here are the store, we have collected prints of works by Alphonse Mucha. His Art Nouveau style was one that I remember studying in college. His artwork is so beautiful. His paintings of the “seasons” where always some of my favorites. Since it is the start of Spring, I thought this painting was appropriate for this time of the year- it is from 1900. It was, and still is, one of my favorites.
