Description
Christopher Columbus (1450 -1506) was an Italian explorer, navigator, colonizer and citizen of the Republic of Genoa. The month after Columbus returned from his first voyage, he began signing his name in a new way—a pyramid of dots and letters. Although he never explained what the mysterious signet meant, he used it on nearly everything he signed until his death 13 years later.
