Wooden Wall Map of the Philippines

Regular price $197.00 Sale

One of the largest and most unique handcrafted wooden wall maps of its kind, it's perfect for a housewarming gift for Philippines travelers, expatriates, or Filipino-American family members. With only one center mounting point, it is the easiest wall display to assemble and hang. Fitting into one moderately sized box, it can be economically shipped anywhere in the world.

Unique Visual Appeal

Nothing is more visually striking than a 3D-like map of wooden islands floating on your wall! Approximately 35 of the largest islands from the Philippine archipelago are represented, rough-cut and glossy black.

Visitors viewing a wooden wall map for the first time will be stunned by the 3D-like appearance. This island silhouette is made to catch the eye from a distance, drawing the viewer in for a more intimate look. There is something about the ability to see this work of art from different angles, and have the ability to touch it, that is different than a two-dimensional map. Once close up, the display reveals a one-of-a-kind, handcrafted look that is much more personal than a product from a factory line.

Perfect Overall Size

Our wooden wall map is approximately 46" high and 29" wide, measuring from island to island. Though this is probably one of the largest map displays of the Philippines currently made, we’ve scaled it down to comfortably fit on any interior wall, whether tucked into a hallway or as a centerpiece in your living room. It does not have a frame, allowing you to seamlessly integrate it with other furniture in the room.

Easy to Assemble and Hang

Once assembled, this can be hung just like a picture frame, with one nail. Other wooden wall maps have more than a dozen mounting points, which is time consuming and difficult to install and remove. Our wooden wall map comes in four parts with one simple page of instruction. Once attached together, you just simply hang it up.

Economical to Ship 

The shipping box size is approximately 26” long, 16” wide, and 5” high, just larger than the average game-board box. This enables it to be shipped domestically or internationally without large package fees.

*How it’s Made

The islands are cut to approximate size and shape from 3/8" thick plywood, painted in black with glossy finish, arranged into the map, and then evasively fastened beneath with thin wooden sticks (painted in off-white or light taupe color with matte finish). It is made into four sections that can be connected to allow it to hang as one piece.
