18th Century Map

While working here in Ft. Lauderdale I see a lot of interesting things get framed that catch my attention. Sometimes its full magazines or golf balls, other times its very beautiful artwork and awards. In this case its an 18th century map of Indonesia and surrounding regions. I think my appreciation for this map comes from all the surf videos I’ve seen that take place in Indonesia. Not only that but with this frames rough look makes the map show its age like its a treasure map and it has secrets that haven’t been discovered yet. This was a simple framing but this piece still draws me in making me want to study the map like I will learn something just by looking at it.
