The Columbus Magnum Political Illuminated Floor Globe 30.5 Inch is a colossal work of art from the legendary German manufacturer. The enormous 30.5 inch globe is held 50 inches high on the distinctive, wishbone shaped stainless steel base. A full, circular meridian cradles the globe and is gimbal mounted to the stand, allowing the sphere to be adjusted vertically for a better view. The base features a bold, contemporary design, whose slim frames serves to highlight the world globe's sharp cartography.
The large sphere features a beautiful blue ocean political map. Thousands of accurate and up to date place names populate the floor globe. Besides the latitude and longitude grid, other cartographical flourishes populate the sumptuous blue ocean. Shipping lanes, along with warm and cool water currents, are displayed on the Magnum. The pale, earth-toned patchwork of the landmasses is a handsome complement to the blue ocean backdrop. Overflowing with geographic merit, this world globe is a force to be reckoned with.
The beautiful Columbus model was hand assembled by the German manufacturer's skilled artisans. The large political map was hand cut and glued to the acrylic sphere in an incredibly labor and time intensive process by the company's trained craftspeople. Inside the sphere is a bright light, that when activated, makes the colors of the floor globe come alive and fill the room with radiant illumination. This exceptional model, with its stellar geography, modern design, gigantic size, vivid illumination and handcrafted nature, makes it a must have Columbus globe!
The superb Columbus Magnum Political Illuminated Floor Globe 30.5 Inch is a feat of contemporary craftsmanship, design and cartography. A masterwork of this size deserves to be showcased in a public venue like a school, university, office, museum or library.
I was charged with finding a large world globe for my company's office. We chose this epic magnum model. It looks great--the base is very interestingly designed. The map is also large, detailed and looks best when illuminated.
