Bird's-eye view of the vibrant city of Loango in present-day Congo. The key (both in English and Dutch) identify the king's palace, court, gardens and other important sites. The foreground is filled with scenes of daily life and ceremony, including an execution.
Overall very good with a couple of small unobtrusive spots.
