This colorful beauty of a poster was originally intended to be a part of the SAS calendar of 1961 with the theme of "The great discoveries of the world" by the famous Danish artist Otto Nielsen.

The poster displays a ground breaking expedition made in 1497 by the Portuguese explorer Vasco da Gama (1460-1524). He is one of the most famous and celebrated explorers from the Age of Discovery, being the first European to reach India by sea. This discovery was very significant and paved the way for the Portuguese to establish a long-lasting colonial empire in Asia. The route meant that the Portuguese would not need to cross the highly disputed Mediterranean nor the dangerous Arabian Peninsula, and that the whole voyage would be made by sea.

Since they come as individual posters they are much more beautiful (no waste of paper for the calendar dates) and easier to frame and hang on the wall. The poster is in perfect condition and is in a great thick paper quality which measures 15.9 x 11.6 in (40.5 x 29.5 cm).

Thanks for watching and please let me know if you have any questions.
