One Man Spent 25 Years To Create The ”World Map” On The Banks Of Lake Klejtrup, Denmark

The following project fellow Lazy Penguins is extremely cool – Søren Poulsen spent twenty five years of his life building a “World Map” on the very banks of the Lake Klejtrup in Denmark. It is a map-project of 4,000-square-meters built exclusively out of soil, stones and grass (final map measures 45 meters by 90 meters).

According to Wikipedia, cartography or mapmaking, has been an integral part of the human history for a long time, possibly up to 8,000 years. From cave paintings to ancient maps of Babylon, Greece, and Asia, through the Age of Exploration, and on into the 21st century, people have created and used maps as essential tools to help them define, explain, and navigate their way through the world.

In the project below there is one detail though, it was built only by one man (Søren) dear friends.

Scroll down and enjoy the presentation, fellow penguins. “H/T”: designyoutrust
