Chapter Five, “Iconography of the Encircling Ocean” is the first of three chapters that focus on the Encircling Ocean form in the world maps. The goal of the three chapters collectively is to conduct an iconographic exploration of the Encircling Ocean form, establishing the KMMS maps in their place within a tradition of great breadth in both time and space. This chapter begins this task by offering a broad look at encircling meta-form occurrences across prehistoric, Mesopotamian, Iranian, Semitic, Indian, Chinese and East Asian mapping traditions.

Keywords:   iconography, Encircling Ocean, Prehistoric, Mesopotamian, Iranian, Semitic, Indian, Chinese, East Asian, Jambudvipa
