The epic Columbus Magnum Physical Illuminated Floor Globe 30.5 Inch is a tremendous testament to the 100 years of globe manufacturing the German company has under its belt. The massive sphere measures to be 30.5 inches, but reaches 50 inches atop its stainless steel base. The floor stand features two curved arms in a wishbone shape that hold the gimbal mounted full meridian. Rotate the world globe up and down to fully appreciate all of the geographical information it has to impart!
The blue ocean physical map is a sight to behold when blown up to this large size. Only highlighting the most important place names, this world globe focuses mainly on earth's relief features. The vivid greens, yellows and browns of the landmasses are set against the complex blue swirl of the ocean. Along with the rivers and mountainous peaks that carve up the continents, the uneven depths of the ocean floor are depicted on the floor globe. Still, dark blue lines denote longitude and latitude on the Magnum.
Savor the exceptional craftsmanship of the Columbus globe! The map was hand cut and placed on the enormous acrylic sphere by the German manufacturer's skilled craftspeople. Applying the map to the floor globe takes years of experience as it's requires a perfection of an unforgiving artisanal process. The beautiful handcrafted map comes alive when the model's internal light bulb is illuminated. With light, the world globe's sumptuous rays radiate outwards, filling up the room with vibrant color.
