Illuminated desktop globe with acrylic sphere, Ø 40 cm, hand-coated, stainless steel mounting.
The different maps are carefully hand-coated onto a 34 cm acrylic sphere by a professional. By manufacturing by hand, COLUMBUS globes become a particularly high-quality manufactured product.
The planet Mars is the most similar to the Earth of all planets, even though it is much smaller than the Earth. It needs 687 days for a complete revolution. In contrast, the Martian day is only half an hour longer than a day on Earth.
On Mars there are hilly landscapes and also high mountains, volcanoes, long deep trenches and canyons, vast plains and ice-covered polar caps. The toasty color of the planet is due to the iron oxide dust that is found everywhere on the surface and also in the atmosphere. Also not to be overlooked are the many craters, a testimony to violent impacts of cosmic bodies over the billions of years.
The classic and elegant yet puristic sparkling mounting obtains its dimly glimmering shine through a special stainless steel finish - or you prefer a mounting made of mirror-finished massive brass. Whatever you decide: This product of great manual skill transforms your globe into an expression of a particular quality of life, which will continue to bring you joy for decades.
