Globe makers in 16th and 17th Centuries created their globes by printing map details on paper sections, or gores, that were cut out, then pasted to a sphere. This beautiful Old World style globe is a reproduction of globes made in Europe, back when some lands had not yet been discovered, and people still believed in sea monsters. It even has markings from the 16 gores, as an antique globe would show. The 8 inch diameter globe has printing in Latin, and features markings describing shipwrecks, monsters and indigenous tribes. It sits on a 4 legged wooden stand, making the piece 16 inches tall, 13 inches in diameter. It looks great in dens, libraries and living rooms, and makes a great gift for history lovers or world travelers.
