Laser-cut wooden relief map of Nantucket, featuring Nantucket Island, Massachusetts. Map is framed and ready to hang, a unique and beautiful gift of artwork for sailors and land-lovers alike.
Nantucket is primarily an affluent summer colony. Most of its homes are seasonally occupied, and in the summer months the island's population swells from 10,000 to over 50,000. It's accessible only by boat or by air. The wharves and cobblestoned streets of the Town of Nantucket are lined with restaurants, high-end boutiques and steepled churches. The town’s Whaling Museum recounts the island’s role as a 19th-century whaling hub.
Points of Interest: Brant Point Light, Coskata-Coatue Wildlife Refuge, Great Point Light, Muskeget Island, Nantucket State Forest, Sankaty Head, and Tuckernuck Island.
Wood Charts are based on soundings and measurements from bathymetric and nautical charts. Each depth layer is laser-cut from sheets of Baltic birch and glued together "bread and butter" style to create the contours and shorelines of striking waterways. Select layers are hand-stained a rich blue-green color to discern water from land, and major byways are etched into the land. The whole work is framed in a custom, solid wood frame and protected with a sheet of durable, ultra-transparent acrylic.
