The caravel La Nina was part of Christopher Columbus's fleet that discovered the American continent on October 12th 1492. The primitive Latin sails reproduced here, were converted to square sails during a stopover in the Canary Islands. After the sinking of the Santa Maria, La Nina became the captain's ship, commanded by Columbus himself during the trip back to Europe. La Nina took part in several more trips between Spain and the New World, but after 1508 she disappeared from the record books.
