The DUO ALBA map features a sleek whitish-grey ocean hue which becomes blue when illuminated. The soft, earth tones of the landmasses on the political map takes on some three dimensional shading of the planet's physical attributes when the model comes alight.

This process requires years of experience from the craftspeople as it is unforgiving and time intensive. The meticulous attention to detail is what ensures Columbus' quality.
