On the Map

Last weekend we were in Sydney, and visited the State Library of New South Wales. We especially liked this replica of Abel Tasman’s map of Australia, which is set into the floor.

There are cute details around the map, like these mer-cherubs checking the direction on a compass (which doesn’t point north).
