A truly great travel poster from Iberia Airlines advertising the Expo '92 in Seville, Spain. The poster displays a huge globe that marks the Expo (World's fair) is global with the sun rising - a metaphor for the progress and improvements for the mankind displayed on the Expo. In the bottom is a prospect of the beautiful Sevillian skyline.
In 1992 it was the 500th anniversary of the discovery of the Americas by Christopher Columbus (1492-1992) and thus the theme was organized to celebrate was "The Age of Discovery". Over 100 countries were represented and the total number of visitors was more than 40.000.000.
Various countries had pavilions including Russia, USA, Japan, India, Australia, China, Canada and a common pavilion shared by countries of The Europe Union. Many of the pavilion was focused on space programs - symbolizing the modern "Age of Discovery" but many pavilions were also dedicated to show of different landmarks, artworks and cultural representations from each country.
