Norman B. Leventhal Map Center

What does world view mean to you? In Crossing Boundaries: Art // Maps, we explore how people from different cultural backgrounds, time periods, and points of view represent themselves and others in their physical space. This Tibetan Mandala makes us as contemplative as its original author must have been in the creation of it. Mandalas, meaning circles in Sanskrit, are important aspects of the meditative practices found in Buddhist teachings. This Ptolemaic Planisphaerium, though neighboring our mandala in this exhibit, tells a very different story of the cosmos. Andreas Cellarius created this map and understood his universe through the lens of Christianity mixed with astrology. Greek gods’ race through the planetary orbits Cellarius tracks in his map as the earth rests in the center. Though separated by nearly 200 years and originating approximately 7,000 kilometers apart, these pieces have come to live in the same display case at the Map Center and inspire us to question how we fit into the world, and universe, around us. Image Descriptions: The first picture of the mandala is in blues, golds, and reds. It features concentric circles and circular patters adorned with classic Buddhist characters. The second picture shares not only a color scheme but also is dominated by concentric circles depicting the planets being towed by Greek Gods’ in chariots. The corners of this piece include detailed pictures of early sciences. PublicLibrary PublicLibrary

Are you doing your Thanksgiving shopping today? Photographer Leslie Jones (1886-1967) captured this cheerful woman carrying her turkey home from @FaneuilHall in November 1952. The Associates is currently underwriting an inventory of @BPLboston’s Photography Collection, including images such as this one. . . . . . #BostonPublicLibrary

Boston Public Library. Reading room by night. 🌀 #bostonpubliclibrary

Afternoon tea at the @bplboston 🍵 with @heck_tore. It was my brother’s first time! Perfect way spend a cold, rainy afternoon inside. . This is easily one of my favorite afternoon tea places because they have matcha latte in their tea selection. My brother had the earl grey tea, and they brought out cream with a splash of vanilla to pair with the tea... and it was also good. . For their savory tea bites, all of the sandwiches were delicious, but the shrimp on brioche and the salmon on pumpernickel were my favorite. I’m also not usually big on scones since I find them dry, but I ate both of them. No dry scones here! They’re even better topped with the Devonshire butter cream and lemon curd. It was light with just the right amount of tang. I actually wanted to take some of the lemon curd back home. . If you’re looking for an indoor activity to do while in Boston, this is it. Add this in your Boston to do list if you haven’t yet. . publiclibrary
