Text reads:  'Map of the Coast of New Ithaca, discovered by Odysseus, commander of a many oared ship, which sailed these dark seas in the years 1770 and 1769 BC.'
Maguire drew this etching soon after The Odyssey of Captain Cook (2005) series was released. The place names include original Maori names, names chosen by Captain Cook during his first voyage to Aotearoa when he mapped these islands, and place names adapted from The Odyssey by Homer.
