It was named, Gitchigami, or the "big water", and I've re-created and re-sized it to frame easily and adorn your wall.

Many summers of my youth, my brothers and I would see who could stay in these chilly, rust-colored waters the longest before needing to rush back to the rocky shores for warmth. For many of us 'Sotans, seeing Lake Superior was the closest thing we had to seeing the ocean. It is a grand and awesome body of water with spooky depths, a rich geological history, and monster-sized, prehistoric-looking sturgeon.

This is an original, layered papercut piece, handmade in Minnesota, in a deliciously rich set of Royal blues, and featuring the world's largest freshwater lake and some of its major islands.

This unique piece is intricately cut from five layers of high quality, acid-free cardstock. The top layer is a bright white, while the layers underneath are in ever-darker shades of color. The back is titled, signed and dated as an original piece.

The work measures 12 x 12 inches, and is about 1/8" thick. It will be sent to you carefully wrapped and supported to ensure it arrives safely.

Like the piece, but prefer a different color? Check out the fifth photo in this listing for all available color sets and be sure to mention your color choice in the message to seller upon checkout.

I'm from Minnesota where I spent much time up north on Lake Superior. I have recently moved to Pennsylvania and am missing home. This has been the PERFECT addition to my new place. It is beautifully made and makes me feel more at home. Couldn't be happier.

I had originally purchased Lake Superior and loved it. I wanted Medicine Lake in the same size. She was super quick to create a custom order and size. I love how they look on my wall!

The print is perfect! Ended up with the Minneapolis Chain of Lakes and the detail of each lake is truly amazing! I can't wait to have a little piece of MPLS in our home!
