Perfection in detail
The map is hand adjusted. To completely cover the sphere, 12 segments are hand-cutted, coated and stretched individually by 2 persons. Each segment covers the adjacent one on 1mm to ensure optimal recovery . After drying , the map is levelized and covered with two layers of marine varnish.
The meridian is in brass. It is manually shaped, engraved and then polished with a special process that gives it a unique brilliance .

The forty hours of hand work needed for its production , the passion and unique expertise of our carpenters, fitters and cartographers make this very large globe an exceptional object .
