The 2015 Super Bowl XLIX
Super Bowl Sunday is behind us! We hope that you enjoyed the game, and got to watch and eat good food with dear friends and family. Along with the game itself, pop star Katy Perry gave a quintessentially outrageous half time show, and the advertisements were as funny as usual. Even before the Super Bowl, there was controversy surrounding an advertisement, with GoDaddy.com's spoof of a Budweiser ad getting pulled from the game before days before kick-off. After debuting the Go Daddy commercial on the internet, the ad generated such a severe backlash that the company decided to air a different commercial during the Super Bowl instead. The New England Patriots played the Seattle Seahawks in Arizona, and while we are not football experts here at Columbus globes (don't worry, we will not bore you with our in-depth football analysis), we did decide to highlight two of our super globes in honor of the Super Bowl! We currently sell the two largest world globes in production, and here is a brief run down on both of these beauties.
The tremendous Columbus Magnum Political Duo 40 Inch Illuminated Floor Globe is a masterpiece of modern globe making. The crown jewel of the exemplary line from the German manufacturer, the Magnum Plus features a gigantic 40 inch world globe that stands 68 inches tall on its futuristic base. The stainless steel stand is wishbone shaped, lending the model a unique flair. A full meridian frames the world globe and is gimbal mounted to the stand, allowing the sphere to be swiveled up and down for close investigation. The colossal floor globe features Columbus' extraordinary political map. The planet's political divisions carve up the continents with thousands of place names populating it. Countries colored in complementary pastel tones enliven the rich blue ocean color.
The 40 inch sphere's political map was hand sliced into gores, and then manually glued to each model. Columbus' skilled artisans labor over each of these beautiful world globes, turning every one of them into a handmade work of art. Additionally, a light bulb located inside the model can be turned on with the flip of a switch that sends the model's vibrant rays rushing into the room and lighting it up with brilliant colors. The exquisite Columbus Magnum Plus Political 40 Inch Illuminated Floor Globe is a modern marvel.
The mammoth Columbus Magnum Plus Physical 40 Inch Illuminated Floor Globe is the relief version of the Magnum Duo, and stands beside it at the very peak of globe manufacturing! The masterful 40 inch globe stands 68 inches tall when held by the wishbone-shaped, stainless steel base. Explore the natural colors and uneven topography of the planet through the detailed physical map! The blue ocean backdrop showcases the deep valleys and ridges of the underwater floor as seen from a satellite view. The landmasses are colored in organic greens, yellows and browns, reflecting the planet's natural hues. While the map also features the most important place names, the focus of this map is mainly on the tall mountain ranges, naturalistic hues and snaking rivers that bisect the lands. A dark blue longitude and latitude grid spans the floor globe, adding to its cartographical splendor.
The extraordinary world globe was hand assembled. Columbus' skilled craftspeople overlaid the acrylic sphere with the relief map, which was manually cut and glued to the sphere's surface. The handcrafted nature of this large world globe ensures its fine quality for a lifetime to come. You have reached the absolute top of the line with the Columbus Magnum Plus Physical 40 Inch Illuminated Floor Globe. The largest commercial globe in production along with the Duo version, this masterpiece is begging for a special place in your school, university, office, museum or library for its exemplary qualities to be appreciated.
