Eggs

Now here is a fantastic projection of the world onto an egg. I have no idea how Peter Bellerby did this, but it demonstrates without a shadow of a doubt his technical and artistic talent.

It is interesting to note the use of shading. For the egg, the shading runs inwards, covering land, rather than outwards covering water. Personally I prefer the latter, but I can’t explain why.

If I am not mistaken, I think FRGS stands for Fellow, Royal Geographic Society. That is pretty impressive, and it also reminds me of a movie “Longitude” which I just watched latest week for the 3rd time. Here, we get a taste of British accents, British ships, British museums, and all other things British. Of course, most of my Deutsche Bank work buddies are in London office at Finsbury Circus, so it quite easy to pick up the British character. Cheers.

I am a member of the Washington Map Society and the International Coronelli Society, which is nice but likely not as interesting as the Royal Geographic Society. Hopefully, if I can convince my family to embark on an expedition/vacation to London, we can stop by the Royal Geographic Society to check things out.
