spherical ancient map

I just converted this ancient world map in a spherical object. 
we are generally used to our perfect idea of the world when we think in three dimension.
but this process gives us a better idea of how the concept of the world could be in those times in which the map was drawn.
I have to admit that the accuracy is quite good! have a look to the third image!

of course when we look to the "peripheral" sides of the world (euro-centric point of view) the accuracy starts to be less and less. 
this is how the pacific ocean should appear if we would unite the map and make it spherical.
I almost like this part better than the front side because it's more fantastic, more open to discoveries and to imagination of new worlds.
