Leather is stained with an antique gel that gives this piece vibrant color with a vintage look. Edges of the map were cut to be rounded and then burnished by hand with gum tragacanth (heat and friction applied with a wooden tool) to seal all edges entirely. Multiple coats of sealing satin sheen were then applied to further preserve the image and give radiant shine.Approximate dimensions of the wooden frame are 35.5" x 20.5". Approximate dimensions of the leather map are 31" x 16". A one of a kind piece that would make a wonderful addition to someone's collection.
Quite possibly the only 100% leather Map of Middle Earth available for sale anywhere!
