This Enormous 20-Foot Wide Tapestry Is a Map of the Entire World

Vanessa Barragão, a textile artist from Portugal, hand-wove this enormous tapestry. Botanical Tapestry is on public display at Heathrow Airport in London.

The project took Barragão 520 hours of work using 18 pounds of jute and cotton and 93 pounds of wool. It's richly textured to show not only the topography of the regions, but also endangered plant and coral species. You can find more photos of this marvel at My Modern Met.
