Vasco da Gama
He was sort of the Steve Jobs of his time ( 1469-1524), a real game changer when he discovered the route to India from Portugal which resulted in great wealth for Portugal. The significance of his discoveries has been compared to modern day man landing on the moon.
This piece was appropriately bought by a Portuguese historian living in Ulgueira, Portugal. Vasco is happily situated overlooking the sea.
