- "The map is finished, sir."
"[Beckett gazes at the map]...Just the way I imagined it."
- ―Artisan and Cutler Beckett[src] (deleted scene)
- "Jack Sparrow is a dying breed. The world is shrinking. The blank edges of the map filled in. Jack must find his place in the New World or perish."
- ―Cutler Beckett to William Turner[src]
Shortly after Lord Cutler Beckett's arrival and takeover of Port Royal, he wanted his plans to be updated constantly. He employs the artisan to paint the map in Beckett's office. As ships bring in reports of the growing power of the East India Trading Company and new discoveries, the artisan paints in the blank portions of the map, adding new ports, countries, and towns. The completion of the map was still in progress with William Turner's meeting with Beckett, Elizabeth Swann's visit to Beckett, and when Beckett took Weatherby Swann's freedom by employing him while telling him the whereabouts of Elizabeth.
