DAU-DAW, a graphic artist based in Aarhus, Denmark is best known for his fictional maps that honor nature, animals and the bond between them.
“The ‘maps’ are all divided into different countries and every mountain, every lake, every city and every ocean in these pieces are named after everything relevant to the title of each piece”, DAU-DAW wrote on Bored Panda.
“Take for example Elephantidae – Land of the Elephant. Everything in this ‘map’ is named after both fictional and actual elephant species that are either extinct or still around today.”
The artist shares his work on his Instagram account and on his website. Each masterpiece, where no geographical locations are presented, takes him between a few days and several weeks.
