The original drawing was created during a period where I took up a fascination in ancient cartography; both how map-makers perceived the known world as well as their representations of it. A handful of google searches will lead you down the rabbit hole.

During a time when a knowledge of the skies and the stars that populated it was paramount towards creating anything that could resemble a map; such drawings and the systems that map-makers of old used in these maps are as alien to the modern viewer now as Google maps would have been to a contemporary of Ptolemy circa 140AD.
