EDITORS COMMENTS
This print showcases the historical voyage of Vasco da Gama's fleet in 1497. Departing from Lisbon, Portugal, these four magnificent ships embarked on a daring journey that would forever shape the course of history. In this beautifully illustrated image, we witness the clockwise arrangement of the fleet's vessels. At the top left stands Sao Gabriel, proudly serving as the flagship for this momentous expedition. Alongside her is Sao Raphael, another sturdy sailing ship ready to brave uncharted waters. The third vessel is Berrio, known for its exceptional storage capacity and vital role in supplying provisions during long voyages. Lastly, an unnamed storage ship completes this formidable fleet. The illustration captures not only the exterior beauty of these caravels but also provides a glimpse into their maritime significance during the Renaissance era. With meticulous handwriting accompanying each vessel's depiction, it serves as a testament to human curiosity and exploration during the Age of Discovery. As we delve into this remarkable piece of artistry from a 16th-century Portuguese manuscript, we are transported back in time to witness Vasco da Gama's pioneering spirit and his relentless pursuit to reach Calicut in 1498. This image encapsulates both awe-inspiring adventure and profound historical significance within its intricate details—a true tribute to one of humanity's greatest explorers and his legendary fleet.
