These gorgeously laser cut maps, made by Below The Boat, exude a kind of craftsmanship that is declining. You certainly don’t have to be a cartographer to appreciate the exquisitely hand painted Baltic Birch. These are the kind of pieces we could see being passed down from generation to generation. At almost $300 a pop, they are well worth it. An interesting point to note is that the pieces look antique with gorgeous patina, from the paint, and etching. Reminders of the depths and contours of our oceans are always crucial in the wake of natural and human made disasters.
