The Ravensburg has a DUORAMA map, which thrills with its versatility.
When the Columbus globe is not illuminated, a stunning physical map is
showcased. Three dimensional shading portrays the earth's high mountains
and deep waters. However, when the globe becomes illuminated, the green
and yellow from the landmasses take on different colors as a political
map appears on the sphere's surface.
Despite the innovative and modern flavor of the desktop globe's
DUORAMA technology, it's the model's craftsmanship that makes it an
enduring model. The acrylic sphere is covered by Columbus' skilled
artisans with a map that they hand cut and apply to the model. The
manual craftsmanship solidifies the high quality construction that these
German designed world globes are known for. The timeless appeal of the
Columbus Ravensburg 13 Inch Illuminated Desktop Globe is apparent.
Whether intended for a desk, bookshelf or coffee table in the home or
office, the Columbus globe will bring wonder and cartographical
information for a lifetime ahead.
