Since the year 2015, IMAGO-TRAD has embraced as its emblem the Fool’s Head World Map, also referred to as the “Fool’s Cap Map of the World.” This illustrious cartographic artifact, originating from the 16th century, is distinguished by its extraordinary design, wherein the contours of the map are ensconced within the whimsical silhouette of a fool’s cap adorned with bells, echoing the iconic attire of a traditional jester. This singular choice of imagery is frequently interpreted as a reflective musing on humanity’s perennial quest for comprehension and mastery over the complexities of the world, or perhaps as a nuanced critique of the geopolitical currents prevalent at the time of the map’s inception. Beyond its emblematic facade, the map meticulously catalogues the geographical knowledge of its era, charting continents and oceans with precision. Yet, it is the evocative motif of the fool’s cap that truly captivates the observer, beckoning a deeper contemplation on the essence of knowledge and the voyage of discovery.
