Europa Labs - Streets of Gold

Streets of Gold

Streets of Gold is a spectacular map of greater London created on a base of 24 carat gold leaf and was a collaboration between Europa Technologies and artist Ewan David Eason. It is based on the folklore tale of “Dick Whittington and his Cat” in which he believes the streets of London are “paved with gold”.
