An expertly made 13" Illuminated globe from Columbus Globes of Germany. The Jena is mounted in a fully calibrated silver semi-meridian and rests on a solid beech wood base with black lacquer finish. A stainless steel ring embedded into the base adds a stylish modern touch to the globes appearance.
A most impressive feature of this globe is its detailed dual map cartography. When the globe is illuminated a political maps displays countries in contrasting colors. When turned off a detailed physical map displays vegetation using deep brown hues to represent mountain ranges, various green and yellow tones representing lush forests, grasslands, and desserts. Landforms and ocean floor bathymetry are displayed with photorealistic shaded relief.
