From Here On There Be Dragons


“Always remember, it’s simply not an adventure worth telling if there aren’t any dragons.” ~J.R.R Tolkien

From Here On There be Dragons is an art installation, currently on display at Split Screen, by Alpha Auer.
A modern building in the sky, guarded by amazing golden Dragons. The mythological creatures stand on a floor which is textured with  a leaf from Abraham Ortelius’s “Theatrum Orbis Terrarum,” a Renaissance map of the world – as to visualise how renaissance and medieval map makers used to draw sea-creatures and dragons on maps of unknown territories (or the edge of the world, of course).

Whether you love old world-maps or Dragons, or both!, the exhibition is certainly worth a visit, the Dragons (as far as I could see they are created by Jade Leaf Studio’s Ayuki) are wonderfully detailed and stunning!

  1. Thank you so much! And yes, well spotted, the dragons are made by Jade Leaf Studios. Amazing work! Even though I did change all of their textures the credit still definitely goes to Ayuki!
