The Narrative and Sole Purpose of These Pieces of Art

The original work of art, oil on canvas, measuring “5.5” by “8” was created to showcase the beauty and history of major cities in the United States of America.

The focal main image is the map of the USA alone in the darkness of space, as if to say we stand alone in the Universe, we are the greatest country in the world.

Each work of art is dedicated to a city, and at the center of each one will include the map of the state of the city being represented.

An image of a Native American Tipi, even though not all Native American Nations in the states used this type of Tipi, it’s a symbolic image. Included are names of Native American Nations written in the region where they originate within each particular state.

Each state map will include the state flag, bird, flower, a bald eagle and the state’s capital building. A star will highlight where the city is located and included around the star will be the date of when the city was founded.

20 consistent images will appear within the main map in every one of the Akii Maps. A tornado that highlights sports and sport teams of the city. 

The anchor on the lower right side of the map happens to be the signature of the artist, the anchor symbolizes the cross of Christ and it has other special meaning to the creator of The My City Maps. 

Below the image of a ghost and cemetery, the most significant natural disaster or tragedy of the city will be depicted.

The sentence IN GOD WE TRUST will appear within the maps.
