Did you know… Himalayas were once under water? In 1924 Noel Odell discovered sandstones and prehistoric fossils dated millions of years old besides Himalayan peaks. Later research proved that Himalayas, although created 60 million year ago, have a much longer history starting about 450 million years ago… under water.
Our World of Mountains is a long waited project. It shows the topographic sculpture of our beloved planet. It’s created not only for mountain climbers, but for every fan of wandering with finger on map or with backpack around the world. Realistic mountain ranges and river valleys will pull you right into adventure. Cut out by laser with a precision of one tenth of millimetre, hand painted and assembled in our workshop. Three dimensional mountain maps are example of modern craftsmanship, where knowledge, aesthetics, ecology and history mix together into a beautiful piece of art. Those in love with old wood will be impressed by our upcycled frames. Each single piece is a unique composition of colours and texture. All of them have their own story of the past to tell you. Just take a look.
Wooden map with a hanging hole at the backside. Cut-out based on our original project, polished, painted and glued by hand. The acrylic paint used to cover the layers of plywood is non-toxic and waterproof. Frames made of old upcycled wood have holes made by nails, bugs, dents, discolouration and uneven surface – that’s how there are no two identical frames.
Material: plywood and natural upcycled wood
Dimensions: 100 x 65 x 3 cm + frame about 6-8 cm
