This is an ORIGINAL, not a reproduction.

About the technique used in this map:

Terrain is depicted using a technique called shaded relief, or hill-shading. This technique simulates the cast shadow thrown upon a raised relief map. Traditionally drawn with charcoal, airbrush and other artist's media, shaded relief is today almost exclusively computer-generated using digital elevation models, with a resulting different look and feel.
