Celebrate The Best Of New York With This Epic Klimt-Inspired Golden Map

Like many artists around the world, Mexican artist Rafael Esquer has been inspired by the beautiful and visionary work of Gustav Klimt, particularly his 'Golden Period'.

Taking his visual cues from Klimt's iconic 'Golden Period' Esquer has created a stunning print of New York City using combination of shimmering gold and silver foil and sharp metallic inks.

Titled 'New York Illuminated' the piece showcases over 600 iconic destinations including 28 buildings, 23 celebrities, 20 media outlets, 12 cultural institutions, 11 urban legends, 10 writers, 8 sports teams, 3 superheroes, and 1 saint from The Big Apple.

"I was an undergraduate visiting from California, and arrived late in the evening. Like most people, I found the city’s lights exhilarating, but they did even more for me: I felt enveloped and connected in their glow, instantly a part of the city. I knew right then that I would live here." explains Esquer.

Look at the poster closely and you'll see pizza-rat in the East Village, the Miracle on the Hudson, a diamond-garnished Martini for only $10,000, and even a few legally topless women wandering about!

It's a spectacular image that would look fantastic on any wall and it's a must-have for anyone who enjoys everything New York City represents. So why not celebrate your love for the Big Apple in style? You can order a limited edition print of 'New York Illuminated' right here.
