A unique and timeless gift; Mova Globes represent the highest level of expertise in technology and science. The globe simulates perpetual motion through a combination of ambient light and the earth’s magnetic field. With each handmade and built to last, the level of detail and craftsmanship is second to none. The globe brings a tranquil point of focus to any room, slowly rotating to present all aspects of its precise design.

MOVA has taken the satellite images from NASA, to create a topographic globe of the Vesta asteroid, one of the last remaining of the protoplanets discovered in 1807. It’s the second-largest object in the asteroid belt and was the first to be visited by a spacecraft in the asteroid belt (NASA's Dawn Mission). Brilliant blue and green tones are mixed with deep reds to show the various elevations and terrain of the famed asteroid. Red hues show a higher elevation while blue shows the lower areas. Vesta is the brightest asteroid in the solar system, and is often visible from Earth with the naked eye, making it a favourite among budding astronomers and hobbyists alike.

All Mova Globes come with a clear three-pronged acrylic stand and are available in other sizes.

How They’re Made: Assembled by hand using the most premium materials, including finely polished polymer resin hemisphere shells and a careful mixture of non-toxic fluids to allow the globes to rotate freely.

Inner Workings: A sophisticated motion mechanism, powered by ambient light, rests discreetly inside each globe. Consisting of solar cells, magnetic elements and other proprietary components, the mechanism drives the continuous rotation without any batteries or power cords.

Graphics: The graphics are carefully designed for spherical objects, maintaining aspect ratios and composition, whilst also taking into account how movement will enhance the design.

Printing: Patented printing technique allows the graphics to be transparent enough to let light permeate the globe, but also opaque enough to conceal the inner workings. Precise colour combinations and speciality inks are used to ensure an impeccable finish.

Assembly: Each Mova Globe is meticulously assembled by hand to ensure that a high-quality, well-engineered masterpiece reaches the hands of customers. After printing and forming the shells, the motion mechanism is placed inside and the two hemispheres are joined together and checked for accuracy and alignment. Once the outer shell is assembled around the inner globe, the patented liquid fills the space to allow for frictionless movement. The finished product is then polished to perfection and packaged.
