The stunning Columbus Bonn Illuminated Floor Globe - 16 Inch is an extraordinary showcase for the DUORAMA map. The 16 inch acrylic world globe reaches 47 inches high upon the stainless steel pedestal stand. The sphere is supported by a half meridian, which holds the globe at a 23.5 degree angle and has a time dial at its northern apex. When the Bonn floor globe is not illuminated, a physical map is visible. Three dimensional shading and variations in color showcase the earth's varied topography. The earth's greens, yellows and browns contrast with the rich blue ocean color on the physical map. However, illuminate the floor globe and watch as some aspects of a political map appear somewhat, with the nation divisions and place names becoming slightly apparent on the model.
The DUORAMA map was manually cut and glued to the floor globe by Columbus' skilled craftspeople. The process takes years to master, and ensures that every model is up to the Columbus' exemplary quality. These handcrafted wonders are built to last a lifetime. The Columbus Bonn Illuminated Floor Globe - 16 Inch is a tremendous model from the top tier manufacturer. Place this modern style world globe in your home or office to add a beautiful decorative flourish that will also inspire a love for geography!
This globe is high quality. Apparently assembled by hand, the map transforms properties when it is lit up. I also love its modernist design.
