The mythical monster world map from the MapTrove collection is quite popular among children and teenagers for its incredible looking monsters. As the name says, this world map is certainly an abode to many supernatural monsters and traces details about their country of origin, cultural context and narrative of their characteristics. These interesting elements make it a perfect material for late night storytelling where people talk about another world beyond the human one.
These monsters have distinct behavioral instincts. Where some monsters are threatening, some are even helpful to humans and have magical powers. These creepy-looking creatures are synonymous with people’s fears and hopes, and link communities to the supernatural world.
The mythical monsters exhibit a variety of characteristics – from the strong but unintelligent ‘Troll of Scandinavia’ to the benevolent and extremely powerful ‘Azure Dragon of China’ to the beautiful, magical forest-dwelling woman ‘Madremonte of Colombia’. The body shape, colors, and dynamic poses help to highlight the individual characteristics of each monster. Each creature’s description is clearly labeled with a matching silhouette to correspond with the color illustration on the map.
The Mythical Monster World Map was created by Peter Dobbin, a renowned artist from the United Kingdom.
