Description This reproduction of an antique graphic created circa 1906 charts the scale, effort required, and physical path of the creation of the Panama Canal. Started by the French in 1880 this great feat of engineering was completed by the United States in 1914. This graphic provides a detailed comparison of the amount of excavation for each country as well as a beautiful map of the complete canal.
HistoryShots Graphics Member Since January 2007 Artist Statement We create visual stories about subjects and topics by combining deep amounts of data with thoughtful designs. Our goal is to make this intersection of information and art compelling enough so that you'll want to display our prints and posters in your house, apartment, office or dorm room. We started in 2004 and our graphics have won numerous design awards and have been featured in dozens of visual information design publications. However, we're still relentlessly trying to merge subject, data and design into the perfect graphic.
Whether you are a film, golf, or music enthusiast; a political junkie or history buff; or a fervent follower of any other subject covered by our catalog of prints, we hope you'll buy one and put it on your wall.
