A mixed bag of art by Lucky Dip Lisa (NZ)
A beautiful old map. A lot better than the Ordinance Survey ones that just use plain symbols to represent things.(Mind you, they probably would help you find your way better!lol) The artist has put a lot of imagination into painting this, and he seems to have a reverance for the land he is describing.
Sorry, 'reverence'. This map was drawn in an age when much land was still literally uncharted territory, so the map makers could let their imaginations run riot. A lot of the world was unknown and not pinned down scientifically, so they could imagine things like these mythical-looking sea creatures. Modern maps are much more efficient, but perhaps less poetic!
Love it. Can't wait to see what your amazing mind will create with all this. What is the Op Shops?
Very cool! But pleeeease don't cut the book - just for me? You could scan/take pics... It's a treasure.Loving all your stuff, it's amazing. Very clever, and taking off.To the girl above me: an op shop is an 'opportunity shop' ie second hand bargain shop that sells donated goods for a charity.
