The TerraSphere world globe is a truly unique specimen of the genre. Inspired by the
original creation of Vincenzo Coronelli, one of the world's most renowned cartographers, this globe
presents a view of the world as seen through the eyes of 17th century explorers and navigators.
The globe has the look of being hand-painted with soft water-colors on aged parchment. The
map features hundreds of place names appearing handwritten in Italian. A beautiful
"Ecliptic Circle", accented with the signs of the zodiac, encircles the globe to trace the path of
the sun through each season. A rich walnut-stained hardwood base, and a full numbered antique
brass-plated semi-meridian provide an additional look of authenticity. (Diameter 12", ht. 19", wt. 6 lbs.)
