'Christopher Columbus stands on board a ship being drawn by Diana toward the islands of Cuba, Hispaniola, and Jamaica [?] and surrounded by mythological sea nymphs or sirens and sea horses with Neptune or Poseidon being drawn by hippocampi (or sea horses) in the background. Includes sea monsters, fish, anchors, banner depicting the crucifixion, a dove with a Greek cross over its head, bow and arrows, and a banner with Columbus' coat of arms.Jan van der Straet, also known as Joannes [or Johannes] Stradanus, compiled a series of four prints under the title Americae retectio in 1592, issued in celebration of the centennial of Columbus' discovery of the New World. This image is reduced from that print. This work was published by Theodor de Bry and is derived from the first part of Girolamo Benzoni, Historia del mondo nuovo, Venice, 1565. Theodor de Bry's America. Pt. 4. Latin.'
