Chinese map over mountain texture

by Jade They

This image was created from sections of my linocuts and the "Kunyu Wanguo Quantu", the first Chinese map to include every continent, drawn in China in 1602. This map is overlaid onto enlarged sections of my own linocuts to create an abstracted composition, drawing connections between the progression of world knowledge and the landscape inspired folklore that my original linocuts illustrate.
