TABLE LAMP XIV GLOBE II


The lamp is made of Senegalese gourd.
Like the first Globe lamp it’s a precise model of the Earth. Meridians and circles of latitude are marked every 20 degrees; the contours of the continents are reconstructed accordingly. The land is marked by a deeper layer of white wood which allows some light to pass through it. Meridians and circles of latitude are perforated.
The closing part around circle of latitude 60 is locked by small magnets.
The supporting stem is finished with brown jeweller waxed string.  The base is carved from wood and finished with natural oil.
Diameter of the gourd is 24 cm and lamp is 41 cm high.
