Seeing the world spin on a globe is probably the closest realism to its actual existence, spinning much faster of course. Though the idea of the globe has remained relatively the same throughout the years, historically the maps have changed as the world has evolved. For those of us known to have wanderlust and yearn to see the world often daydream while staring at a globe or for the more adventurously enabled characters will use a globe as their spinning pin point towards their next spontaneous excursion.
The world globe has adorned many classrooms and libraries and is a symbol or a commonality we all share, the earth. The ability to see the earth in its formation with all of its treasured continents, towns and cities as it sits in pools of various oceans; it sure is an art piece within itself.
Far too often globes look too much alike and although appreciated, owning one may not necessarily display well with our style or décor. A company known as ImagineNations (clever name), known as artonglobes, has spun a new view on globes by recycling old ones into artistically customizable works of art.
Each globe is unique since no two are alike; they are handmade to order on vintage globes that are recycled with character to show its own travels. The artwork to each globe is hand cut and decoupaged onto the globes and then sealed with a finish for protection.
