This eye-catching globe features cool sea foam green oceans combined with a vintage 1790 map created by Giovanni Maria Cassini.
The soothing sea foam green colour palette is the first thing people notice, and it offers a soothing and serene tone. Aside from its aesthetic appeal, this globe is also highlighted by its historical relevance. It depicts the three voyages taken by Captain James Cook in a design created by Giovanni Maria Cassini in 1790. A red ecliptic line is also present, showing the sun's position each day of the year.

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 while also taking into account how movement will ultimately enhance the designs.
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 finished print.
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, or cube, is assembled around the inner globe, our patented liquid fills the space to allow for frictionless movement. The finished product is then polished to perfection and packaged.
