Laser-cut wooden relief map of Sanibel Island, featuring Sanibel Island, Florida. Map is framed and ready to hang, a unique and beautiful gift of artwork for sailors and land-lovers alike.
Sanibel is a barrier island -- a collection of sand on the leeward (downwind) side of Pine Island, which is made of more solid coral rock. It's known for its bounty of seashells which is a result of the island's location and its east-west orientation. It sits on a large plateau that extends west into the Gulf of Mexico for several miles, creating a shelf for the shells to collect on and eventually wash onto the shore.
Points of Interest: San Carlos Bay, Gulf of Mexico, Pine Island, Captiva Island, J.N. Ding Darling National Wildlife Refuge, Tarpon Bay, St. James City, Caloosahatchee River, and Matlacha Pass National Wildlife Refuge.
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.
