15th C. Ship Graffiti, Calatrava la Vieja, Esp 3D Model
Medieval graffiti from Calatrava la Vieja, Castilla-La Mancha, Spain. Late medieval Christian period (3rd quarter 15th century CE). Located in the crypt of the Santa María La Blanca Church, inside the alcazar. The main motif is a “coca” from the later 15th C, a merchant ship etched with precision and detail, probably by a sailor who knew this type of ship well, and with this act requested the protection of the virgin, as a votive graffiti. It is an interesting drawing because it depicts the complete rigging, including the crow´s nests, the bow castle, the stern fortress, and the “codaste” rudder-an element of great importance in the history of navigation, given that its use after 1425 allowed navigation on the high seas, and gave way to the Age of Discovery.
