Roatán Island, Honduras - Wood Laser Cut Map
This is a beautifully detailed, laser engraved and precision cut Map of Roatán, the largest of the Bay Islands of Honduras with the following interesting stats carved into it:
Nickname: The Big Island
Roatán is located 30 miles off the north coast of Honduras atop the world’s second largest coral reef. The reef attracts many fish, and is world known for scuba diving.
Sandy Bay: Most of Roatan's cultural attractions are located in Sandy Bay, such as the Institute of Marine Sciences and the Carambola Gardens and Marine Reserve. Sandy Bay is just across the narrow width of the island from Coxen Hole.
French Harbour: Lively French Harbour is the core of Roatan's fishing trade. Several of Roatan's most exclusive hotels are located here, as well as the island's only Iguana conservatory.
Punta Gorda: The only Garifuna settlement on Roatan, Punta Gorda boasts a dynamic culture that has remained largely unchanged since the late 1700s.
You can choose the stand out map which is mounted onto a tranquil blue back with a key hole cut on the back, ready to hang.
Available in two sizes:
Standard Stand out 15"x23"
Large Stand out 19"x32"
Or a framed map, our classic solid wood English chestnut stained frame gives it the classic look, also available in three sizes;
Standard 18”x27” map
Large 37”x24” map
Extra Large 31”x47” map
Interesting factoids: Americans already know the basilisk lizard by an intriguing name: the Jesus Lizard, named after its amazing talent for walking (or running, rather) on water. Yet its name on Roatan is even funnier: the Monkey Lala.
(Not all of this information made it onto the map, we just love to read up on the lakes we design)
All maps include special points of interest laser engraved into the map face and come with a beautiful blue self-adhesive Swarovski Crystal to mark your preferred location on the map (see sample picture).
Each map is a beautiful artistic handcrafted work of art using the finest woods with special attention to every detail. Due to the natural variation in wood grain, each map will vary slightly in finish and color, some come to us all blonde and some has beautiful variances, making each one unique and one-of-a-kind. If you would prefer lighter or darker don't hesitate to ask. (Photo shown is our showroom display. Your map will be very close to this, but wood grain, knots, and final finish color may be slightly different.) Birch is our wood of preference.
Once the map is cut and engraved we hand sand multiple times, assemble and clear coat them for a lustrous wood shine. We believe that this personal attention each and every item receives makes each wooden item a unique work of art.
Made in the USA by American workers in an American owned business.
Please note on smaller maps (13 x 16 and 14 x 17 framed) it may be hard to read road names and if the lake has islands they will not be included. For personalized items, we will send a graphic proof for you to approve prior to production.
