Map Scroll Design: Hand-embroidered iconic sea serpent on a modern day aviation chart

This large sea serpent design is from an antique sailing map called the Carta Marina by Olaus Magnus. It’s first copies were printed in the early 1500s. I’ve hand-embroidered his design onto a modern day aviation chart.

The complete piece measures approximately 50cm x 30cm (20″ x 11″)
