A Big Tin

The Shady Old Lady points out that you can drag this map using mouse. Or visit our full massive map.


The image on the tin depicts a biblical story (the Book of Judges) - a swarm of bees nesting in a lions corpse, previously killed by Samson, on-route to the land of the Philistines. Hence- "Out of the strong came forth sweetness" (paul deith)
