Cape Map with Monster Seals
This 8.5 x 8.5 oil painting on panel is an imaginary map of Cape Cod being attached by three monstrous walruses. To keep navigators from sailing off the edge of the world, cartographers added frightening creatures. They became so popular that even after it was proved the world was round, monsters could be added just for fun!!
Shown in Juried show at Cape Cod Arts Foundation, Hyannis, December 2019.
