Super Mario World’s Dinosaur Land Laser-Etched Wood Map by Alex Griendling
Prints available for purchase from the Neutral Ground Shop. US$150
This beautiful wooden map is the second in a series of maps from Neutral Ground, a "digital woodshop" based in New Orleans, Louisiana. Designed in collaboration with Alex Griendling, the Woodlands series pays tribute to classic maps from video games, and to the intrepid explorers who dedicated themselves to the discovery of everything in them.
"We grew up during a time when video games came with packed-in manuals. Sometimes, those manuals included a beautiful map of the world you were soon to discover. Our Woodlands series of laser-etched wood maps is a salute to those who love exploring in fiction and being immersed in the artwork that defines those worlds.
Our Woodlands maps are a collaboration with Alex Griendling, a very talented graphic designer based out of Minneapolis. The maps are etched on beautiful pieces of hand-selected maple ply that measure about 18-1/2" wide by 14" tall."
