The story behind

Sebastian Münster was a cartographer, historian, astronomer, mathematician and scholar of Hebrew. His book Cosmographia Universalis was published for the first time in Germany in 1544, and one of the most widely read books of the 16th century. When Jan Bajtlik discovered an original edition in a Polish library, he was fascinated by this vision of the world made up of myths and legends. His scarf represents an imaginary landscape and combines architecture, fauna and flora. By using seahorses, sea monsters or even pyramids as models, he creates a dreamlike universe populated by extraordinary creatures.
