“The inspiration for this particular pattern was the historic “Nolli Map of Rome” drawn in the 1700s. From afar the pattern looks like natural rock, but up close it reveals an old city map. Observed in detail one can even make out the street names, courtyards and churches. But in reality you cannot find this city anywhere, as the map has been drawn on top of the image of an oak leaf; the leaf stems are transformed into streets and the spaces in between become city blocks and buildings.”
