This map was inspired by antique circular celestial maps that often picked out the constellations as images.  The map is annotated with stories.  Science, folklore and history collide to give a grand sweeping view of the skies.  Our own voices and those from the past always mix to create a broad understanding of place.  I'm hoping that I'll have a better idea of the stars next time I look up on a clear night....
The original was hand drawn and lettered in white ink on blue mountboard with silver leaf gilding.
