The story behind the artwork
The Eldgamla Isafold Limited Edition map artworks take you on a journey back to an ancient Iceland; a forbidding and isolated island with icy cold nights that whispered tales of folklore and myth; a time where nature was its own true master. The 16th century map Kristjana has used is based upon an original by Guðbrandur Þorláksson, bishop of Hólar. He was the longest-serving bishop in Iceland and is known for printing the Guðbrandsbiblía, first complete Icelandic translation of the Bible.
Eldgamla Isafold - Fannhvitt conveys the all consuming light of the midnight sun, a brightness that reveals the abundance of flora and fauna that thrives in this extraordinary habitat. Icelandic moths dance around erupting volcanoes, sea monsters parry with viking long-ships, while decorative cartouches and a compass rose represent the Island’s unique geographical location and rich history.
