Babylon Print Layout

Iraq Map Sketch

These are the basic areas of the Babylon map that will contain some of the patterns I posted earlier. I plan to carve some cuneiform writing in the section at the bottom of the sketch. The shape that straddles the Tigris River, near the center of the print, is the outline of modern Baghdad. The other areas will be carved in patterns from various time periods. I'm hoping that this arrangement will convey both a sense of historical time and also the idea of disparate "tribes" all existing together in a small area. I've carved a few blocks into these basic shapes and now need to transfer the patterns to these blocks for further carving.
