This is a very unusual and uncommon map depicting the region from Asia Minor to India and including all of the Arabian peninsula within a circle. The Garden of Eden is at center. Surrounding the map are four scenes: Adam and Eve in the Garden, Noah's Ark, Moses receiving the Ten Commandments, and the birth of Christ. It is a very decorative and interesting map.
