"Prime Meridian"

Size: 5" x 7"

Papercut Art on archival paper with printed vintage map for background.


The prime meridian is the longitude line of 0 degrees, used as the origin for measurements of longitude. The meridian (longitude) of Greenwich, England is the internationally accepted prime meridian on most charts and maps. However, local or national prime meridians are occasionally used. 


The idea of a baseline helps us orient our lives and determine how well or healthy (or unhealthy) we are. In a similar way, the prime meridian is a baseline, an origin, for the measurement of longitude. Location on a map is determined by latitude and longitude, but these coordinates are meaningless without the designation of the prime meridian-- a "home base" if you will. When you determine your own "Prime Meridian" in life,  you'll never get lost. 


Created as part of the Cartography of Flowers Collection.


This papercut art piece is hand-cut from one sheet of white archival paper and matted with a printed colored vintage map of the Caribbean Sea. The floral bouquet is made up of a large peony flower in the center, surrounded by three generic flowers, leaves, twigs, and berry stems.
