*The World's Most Advanced Globe*
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.
This globe showcases a vintage 1790 map created by Giovanni Maria Cassini, it has historical relevance as it depicts the three voyages taken by Captain James Cook. Within the serene colour palate, you will see a red ecliptic line showing the sun's position each day of the year. Note there is no Antarctica because James Cook didn't believe it existed.
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.
