Item#: X NGMM C011929

In 1927, famed American painter N. C. Wyeth completed a series of five murals for Hubbard Memorial Hall, the National Geographic Society's first formal library. The Map of Discovery: Western Hemisphere, published in January 1929, is one of those outstanding murals. It features Poseidon and a mermaid keeping watch over the oceans as well as the routes of explorers and dates of expeditions.

The 1929 "Map of Discovery: Western Hemisphere" map features:
• North America and South America with political boundaries as they existed in 1927
• Ocean routes of explorers and the year they traveled them
• Illuminated mariner's chart style
• Beautiful border art of Poseidon and a mermaid

Coverage Area: Western Hemisphere, including North America, South America.

This Mounted Map is a fine art plaque that consists of your selected map printed on art print paper with a heat activated adhesive that adheres the map to a piece of MDF wood. A UV Blocking Laminate is added on top for protection (but not for dry erase).
