A true demonstration of the progress of globe making, the ultra sleek Full Circle Reflection Lighted Globe adds a worldly focal point to home or office. The globe features an up to date map with an elegant light silver-gray surface area and dark silver-grey land surfaces. When lit, this magnificent globe inverts its colors illuminating the land masses in an opulent milky white, defining earth's continents beautifully against the now black seas. The minimalist design is mounted on an aluminum axis and sits atop a dark ash hardwood base.
