Old World Maps Giveaway

I have been fascinated with maps for years and when I discovered map art I was hooked!  With my month as Queen Bee, I decided to see what the hives take would be on the topic of Old World Maps.  It has been a big challenge for everyone and I love what they have created!  A few of the members are still working on theirs and they will be added as they become available.
If you would like a chance at winning a 6x6" square of all 11 pieces then leave a comment below or on my blog.  Comments will close on January 15th and a winner announced on the 16th!

And then go stop by the other members blogs to see how they created their pieces.
