An attractive and rare antique map of southern India, super-imposed on a trompe l'oeil tapestry over a view of Negapatnam (Nagapattinam).

The image also includes an inset map of the Malabar coast.

The map alludes to the fact that Nagaptnam had been a major Portuguese trading center in Coromandel until it was handed over to the Dutch in 1676. The city became the capital of Dutch Coromandel in 1690. The city shows many Dutch vessels and Dutch flags flying overhead.
