Literally A Map Of Riches
Most maps are pointers to something; from today's turn-by-turn voice guided navigation to the "X marks the spot" treasure maps of legend.
This map however, is not a pointer to riches, instead it's made of riches.
A large-scale, unique and intricate portrait of our Earth - a planet which is surely a jewel of the universe - innovatively created from 330,000 hand-cut pieces of stained glass, 1238 jewels totalling 260 carats, and over 6900 LEDs.
I've written before about maps as art, but this is both a map, a work of art and the map as art and with a tip of the hat to Sitaram Shastri for the heads up. Check out jeweloftheuniverse.net for loads more pictures of this gorgeous map.
