Mecca and Medina Vintage Map Hanging Wooden Heart

£15.00

Description

I love old maps - the colours, typeface and patina are just not found in modern versions, and the details are fascinating and show how the world has changed.

The map of Saudia Arabia used on this heart is a real beauty and has been reproduced from a map printed almost a hundred years ago in 1922.

I have mounted the map by hand onto a solid wooden heart before gently sanding it around the edges to make it rounded and soft to the touch, and hanging it on a loop of twine. 

The map includes Mecca, Medina, Jedda, El Sefa, Shebara, Yanbo el-Bahr and many other places in the region.

A personalised version of this piece is also available - click here for details. 

Gift Wrap

Your heart will be prettily wrapped in tissue and twine.
