BABYLON, "The Bond of Heaven & Earth"
Digital Art Museum Schematic Plan
It is well known that Robert Johann Koldewey is considered the first archaeologist who started the systematic expedition of Babylon in 1898. Worldwide, archaeologists have used several schematic maps of Babylon since then. Among the most popular maps was the one drawn during Koldewey’s expedition of the Hanging Gardens of Babylon during 1899-1917.
Many historians included schematic plans of Babylon in their studies, however, they were either displayed incomplete geographic or /and architectural details of Babylon.
However, no study, including the famous Cultural Atlas of Mesopotamia and the ancient near east by Michael Roaf and the Historical Atlas of Ancient Mesopotamia by Norman Bancroft Hunt, covered the most important structures and city details. The two atlases mentioned above were either incorrectly labeled or failed to include important structures.
Even the Iraqi State Organization of Antiquities and Heritage, known for publishing many well-done maps, missed important details.
The enclosed 2004-2021 colored, digital art schematic map of Babylon, which I have researched and sketches, is almost the perfect version of Babylonian structures, quarters, and landmarks.
This beautiful extraordinary digitally-drawn colorful museum-quality plan of Babylon signed by the artist, which was published in the newly released book Chaldean Legacy is available at:
The 36x24 framed version is available for only $750 plus the shipping cost. The unframed 36x24 digital artwork is only $500 plus the shipping cost.
