The tremendous Columbus Magnum Plus Political Illuminated Floor Globe 40 Inch 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. The contemporary styled base is minimally designed, leaving the exceptionally large world globe to take center stage. 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. In addition to the thousands of current and accurate place names populating the world globe, other cartographical information like shipping lanes, water current directions and a latitude-longitude grid span this informative map. The planet's political divisions carve up the continents, with countries colored in complementary pastel tones that enliven the rich blue ocean color. Be enchanted by the extraordinary geographic detail of this Columbus globe for years to come!
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 Illuminated Floor Globe 40 Inch is a modern marvel. With its stylish design, exacting cartography and handcrafted quality, it is a treasure in the Columbus line. The largest commercial globe in production deserves to be placed in a public place like a school, university, office, museum or library to attract the attention it merits.
