Four winds

In each of the corners of the map there are cherubs representing the four winds.

Tasman's Map

In the vestibule of the Mitchell Library there is a reproduction of Tasman's Map in marble on the floor.  It's a beautiful thing.  I will show you a close up on one piece tomorrow.

Mitchell Library

As promised I am going to show you some shots of the Mitchell Library.  All those books ... what a blissful place.
