The Great Lakes
Sometimes referred to as the inland seas, the Great Lakes of North America are vast and expansive, crossing two countries. This map depicts not a birds eye view, but an astronaut's view of the lakes. They are interconnected freshwater lakes with approximately 35,000 islands dispersed throughout them.
The map depicts detailed bathymetric data (“topography of the water”). Made from 12 layers of 1/16" plywood, each layer represents 80ft of water depth. Each map will be unique due to the individual grain of the wood. They are all handmade with great care and attention to detail.
