Henrique Hondius - 1639
Artistic reproduction from the original map published in Amsterdam, the map includes inserts about the All Saints Bay and the city of Olinda on the superior part; decorations with drawings of cannibal tribes and their victims, places populated near the coast, indigenous ethnicity and on the left corner on the bottom a curious decoration topped by the head of the mythological God Pan and next to it images of indigenous and its daily routine. Other curiosity about it is that the map is lying down, contradiction the posterior map convention pointed to the north.
This map is part of a series of maps about the colonization of the Americas pretentious personal project that looked to sharpen the curiosity on students about our history with its distribution in classrooms of all learning levels, project that did not go through due the lack of interest by the responsible agencies for the education and culture in our country.
