The Columbus Magnum Plus Political Illuminated Floor Globe is as big as it gets! There is no company on the planet making globes as large as this mammoth Columbus model. The sphere itself is 40 inches in diameter and the entire model stands 68 inches tall, which is the same height as many people! The magnificent globe is gimbal-mounted onto the 360 degree cylindrical meridian. That means that the sphere can be swiveled up and down to fit the viewer's perspective.
A stylishly curved, wishbone shaped base supports this epic globe. The futuristic design makes the brushed stainless steel stand almost unnoticeable. The impressive quality of the sphere on such a strikingly minimal base pulls the attention of the viewer exactly where it should belong: on the globe itself. The world globe is truly a sight to behold. Surprising as it might seem, the tremendous map is hand cut and hand applied to this giant sphere. As such, Columbus' political map has never been viewed in such glory.
The details of the political map on the Magnum model can be seen with a level of detail simply not imaginable with a smaller globe. Geographical information like cities names or shipping routes is clearly visible. The tastefully chosen pastel color scheme of the political map impressed with the cool ocean blue and the soft pastel country colors. Thousands of place names abound on the enormous model and cascade into the room when the illuminated globe's internal light bulb is activated.
There is no other way to put it: the Columbus Magnum Plus Political Illuminated Floor Globe is a masterpiece. The symphony of different factors that coincide in this colossal work of art make it a globe unparalleled the world over. Put this enormous Columbus floor globe in a public place like a library, museum, office or school to have dozens of curious eyes attached to this illustrious geographical wonder.
