A 3-D perspective image of East Mediterranean from 1529

[Detail photo by E.L. for private use]

Maps in Great Painting: The masterpiece by Albrecht Altdorfer (1482-1538) "The Battle of Issus" from 1529 at Alte Pinakothek in Munich contains a "super modern" 3-D perspective (bird-eye) represetantion of the geography of East Mediterranean (Cyprus, the Red Sea and the Nile Delta) in a really impressive view. It is worth a visit!
