The National Geographic Hudson Desktop Globe is a fitting tribute to Henry Hudson, the pioneering explorer that serves as the model's namesake. Hudson himself would have put the exacting cartography of the beautiful National Geographic model to good use if he had it at his disposal. Likely, he would have found a much better route to China! The world globe features a 12 inch sphere that is lifted to 20 inches by its hardwood base. The handsomely crafted stand supports an antique brass-plated semi-meridian, which frames the desktop globe and includes latitudinal calibrations.
The rich, detailed bluish hue of the ocean is offset by the pale, off white color of the continents. The landmasses and respective countries feature brightly colored borders that serve to delineate the political divisions of the current world. The varied depths of the ocean floor are represented on this world globe by the range of its bluish shade. The lighter sections represent the shallower parts of the ocean and visa-versa. The intoxicating color scheme and excellent design matched with the meticulously detailed National Geographic map make the Hudson Desktop Globe an appealing addition to your home, office or school. This decorative piece thrills with its geographical merit!
I really like my National Geographic globe, and the Dura Globes staff was helpful in answering my questions and helping me narrow down my search. Thanks again.
