This flat map is mounted on a swivel atop a stand that has two levels that illustrate some aspects of medieval life. The map itself is flat with guard rails to keep you from falling off. Extreme caution should be used when approaching the unprotected watery edge that could send you over to your doom. There be dragons!
"The Known World - Flat Earth" mixed media 34 x 30 x 6 2012
The Known World sits atop a stand with two levels. The upper is a dungeon-like environment, complete with chainmail, suspended bodies and a variety of odd looking implements. The lower level holds a soiled and grimy globe of the world suspended in its cage on its axis. Ignorance and prejudice keep the notion of the world being round hidden away, though still nourished if only with a small bucket of gruel.
