Charming pictorial bird's-eye view of Charlotte, North Carolina, riffing off of Saul Steinberg's famous New Yorker cover.

The view shows downtown Charlotte looking westward from the Atlantic. In the foreground are Myrtle Beach and the Outer Banks. The Mississippi and a few other national landmarks characterize the local perception of American, and Australia, Hawaii, and Japan are all that matters of the world beyond.

The view is signed "Zahnd" in the lower-right corner.

The view is based on Saul Steinberg's famous New Yorker magazine cover "View of the World from 9th Avenue", which appeared in March 1976, and lampooned New Yorkers' alleged navel-gazing attitude.

The present view is one of a large series of images that riffed on the Steinberg concept while substituting other American and worldwide cities. Steinberg's original work has been the subject of almost-countless parodies, including one, by Columbia Pictures, which resulted in a copyright infringement lawsuit.
