The story behind the artwork
Eons before the stumbling cartography of humans, once only birds traced an ocean’s depths to a mountain’s climb, their flight paths spanning vast, unguessed-at distances. And dragons unfurled in ancient, dangerous corners of the world, warning off any sight-seeing cats that drifted too close by. Kristjana reflects on the enigmatic past of world exploration.
"Here be dragons" means dangerous or unexplored territories, in imitation of a medieval practice of putting illustrations of dragons, sea monsters and other mythological creatures on uncharted areas of maps, where potential dangers were thought to exist.
