Connected to the Atlantic Ocean through the Saint Lawrence Seaway and the Great Lakes Waterway, this collection of freshwater lakes represents the largest group on Earth and contains 21% of the world's surface fresh water. Though the lakes reside in separate basins, they form a single, naturally-interconnected body of water. Of the five lakes, Lake Michigan is the only one that is located entirely within the United States; the others form a water border between the US and Canada.
Over the past century, the lakes' water level has only varied by about 6 feet. Niagara Falls connects Lake Erie to Lake Ontario.
Construction: This piece comes ready to hang, pre-framed in a custom, solid-wood frame. Its rich contours are carefully crafted from laser-cut layers of Baltic birch, which are hand colored and glued together with the intent that each becomes a prized conversational piece and treasured heirloom.
It was designed in the United States, crafted in a family-owned shop overseas, and imported.
