This nickel globe is styled on the the Eichholtz Globe which is a contemporary twist to the traditional ornamental globe. This openwork globe features detailed etched zodiac, axis and pedestal with black plinth, and would be perfect to place on any shelf, desk, or table top.

These style of globes have become an icon of science with their elegant rings and beautiful silhouettes. Eratosthenes may have invented the armillary spheres around 255 BC. These instruments are made up of a set of graduated rings representing circles on the celestial sphere, such as the meridian, equator, ecliptic horizon, tropics, and colures. With the aid of an armillary sphere, one can track the path of the Sun for any given day of the year or determine a star's coordinates. The earth is represented by the brass sphere located at the centre of the armillary sphere. This Elegant reproduction of European Demonstrational Armillary Sphere shows a relationship among the significant lines and points of the sky.
