"A man sets himself the task of portraying the world.

Over the years he fills a given surface with images of

provinces and kingdoms, mountains, bays, ships, islands,

fish, rooms, instruments, heavenly bodies, horses and

people. Shortly before he dies he discovers that this

patient labyrinth of lines is a drawing of his own face."
