The most famous of all cartographic curiosities maps of theLow Countries depicted in the form of a lion.

The 'Leo Hollandicus', where the Seven United Provinces were depicted as a lion are the rarest. 

Visscher seems to have first published the map before 1625, the year in which the dedicatee Prince Maurice died. A second example was published dated 1633, while the third state was published in 1648, when the Spanish confirmed Dutch independence.
