The Phoenix II
12" Raised Relief Desk Globe from National Geographic
The Phoenix II globe features a stunningly crafted solid steel base. A
unique design by artist Tom Torrens that presents this National Geographic
globe with a dramatic touch of modern elegance. The sweeping flair of the
black metal base converges to support a full-swing meridian assembly that
allows the globe to be tilted a full 360° on one axis and spun within its
meridian. The die-cast metal meridian features a matching black finish that
contrasts perfectly with the parchment ocean globe ball.
up-to-date National Geographic globe ball is produced in the United States
by Replogle Globes. It is expertly crafted using 100% re-claimed paperfiber.
Globe details include over 4,000 place names, countries represented in
contrasting colors, delineated U.S. states, and bodies of water. Raised
relief provides a better perspective of topographic features such as
mounting ranges. Ocean floor trenches, basins, and ridges are illustrated
through detailed visual relief shading. The meridian is fully calibrated and
a time dial is featured at the North Pole.
