Fascinating! I wonder if this is a political message, or I'm just reading into it too much. Excellent work though!

Personally, what attracted me most was the original way to redirect the map of Europe to a human person... but certainly it has a political message, at least to the sixteenth century .. :-) Thank you very much, mate. : hug:

Fix ce voiam şi eu să zic! Tocmai scriam comentariul când l-am văzut pe al tău.
Deşi ar trebui mai degrabă să se supere moldovenii şi cei din Dobrogea: a pus Valahia(Ţara Românească, Valachia) şi Transilvania. N-a mai avut loc pe hartă bănuiesc.:| (Blank Stare) România nu exista pe vremea aceea (franţa se chema Galia, deci pare o hartă a Evului Mediu):) (Smile)

It works at least!  arteymetal's link was good except that he didn't put a space before the closing ")", so the browser thought that was part of the URL and couldn't find it.  People here often do that until they figure out how to get it right.

Sorry for the error by placing the link. It's fixed in the header.

Here you see the original, at least I used because there are more versions like this, for example.

But Italy is supposed to be the boot!!

No, just kidding :XD: Amazing work, I've never seen such a style of map before! And I can only imagine how you shaped it with such precision.

OH Artey what a marvelous creation of art. To see all those old names I remember from school but never have I seen a map made with such reverence. It is beautiful and following the lines and reading the names is fun as well. You have created a wonderful memory for years to come for this person and I know they will love it as much as I like just seeing your wonderful work of art.

It is really inspirational Artey, She is lovely and her Crown is beautiful. You embellished this piece so very well it is a box anyone would love to have and cherish. Especially made with love from a friend.

I had to translate your last comment and it sounds pretty darn good in both languages. More romantic in yours but if I can be of any encouragement I am grateful to be there to help you. When ever you may need a kind word or just to know that someone really cares about what is happening to you drop me a note.

If I can bring you any kind of luck that would cheer me up. So I will continue to keep you in my prayers and good thoughts. Especially when I hear a good drum solo I will think of you.

Talk to you soon, I do hope.
