"Astrological Map #9" Celestial Star Chart Hand Painted on Canvas by Dr Franky Dolan

Here we have gorgeous old world celestial charts, beautifully painted over and protected by Dr Franky Dolan. With an intense passion for the forgotten beauty of ancient art, he has a collection of rare ancient celestial charts and artifacts. We specially select and print old faded black and white impressions of real celestial charts, most of which were originally inked approximately 200 years ago!

Celestial charts are on thick cotton cloth canvas, with layers of inks, paint pigments, metallic patinas and beautiful old world wax-like mediums. (Similar to our Old World Maps!)

1...Choose your colors, including metallic colors such as gold, copper, silver, bronze etc. (Most old world celestial charts use copper or gold. See Old World Map examples in the shop for ideas if needed.)

3...Depending on your color and size specifications, and our work demands, this process will take anywhere from 2-12 weeks per canvas celestial chart to be completed.
(Canvas charts are loose, without matting; they can be rolled like treasure maps.)

SIZE & TIME NOTE: If you have specific time constrains, or need a size that is unlisted here, please let us know and we will do our best to accommodate your needs.

Dr Dolan is a master color composer. He layers paints and mediums to allow the piece to actually change color, depending on the time of day or the angle of light. He brings these charts back to a whole new life, using colorful layers of specialty inks and paints that will last the test of time. Look closely, see the brush strokes and ink marks that he enhances the celestial charts with, all by hand. Faded areas and distressing are a beautiful part of this artistic resurrection. The metallic paints become so incredibly alive in person. These original one of a kind art pieces are true heart-filled resurrections of the forgotten art of celestial charting! It is true old world, reincarnated through art.

Many scientific constellations are shown throughout most celestial charts, alongside the depictions of mythological tales and times. Each final celestial chart painting includes a legal *certificate of authenticity* and an original calligraphy signature from by Dr Franky Dolan himself!

We will skillfully wrap and pack your celestial charts, adding bonus cards with information about the cause that your purchase supports. Upgraded Priority shipping is included as well for extra care and speedy delivery!
