Arpex defined

Peter Mirow has posted an answer online to a question I put to him about the meaning of the name Arpex. He also posted a portrait of the landscape in question, done in his singular style of making artwork with iron oxide stains on dacron sailcloth, if I've got it right. The example I've included here is of another point and mountain range. You can dig into more of Peter's work here.

Yo've got it right, Thomas.

The image shown here is named "Pão de Açúcar" (Sugar Loaf), and shows the area of the Bay entrance (Guanabara Bay). The entrance is right underneath of the Sugar Loaf, that is, to the right of the image. To the far left is the Cotunduba Island.
