Mappa Mundi series – Ewan David Eason

Mappa Mundi Auckland

Ewan David Eason – Mappa Mundi – Auckland


In the Mappa Mundi Series, Ewan David Eason explores the sacred spaces between the roads in diverse metropolitan cities. By removing the street names and colouring the buildings in gold, he aims to draw on the egalitarianism of the city and the sacredness therein.

The title was inspired by the medieval Mappa Mundi – a general term to describe maps of the world. Taken from the latin words mappa (cloth or chart) and mundi (of the worlds). The majority of the maps were circular – in the reference to Biblical verses such as Isiah 40:22
