This map shows the Land of Canaan during the time of the patriarch Abraham, with a separate inset of his journey from Ur. Medallions depicting scenes from Abrahams life surround the entire map. The cities of Sodom and Gomorrah, usually depicted in biblical maps as flaming ruins covered by the Dead Sea, can be seen here before their destruction. The inner frame of the map is designed to resemble a hanging tapestry. This famous map was included in Orteliuss atlas Theatrum Orbis Terrarum.
