None of the original globes have survived to the present day, and only one set of unmounted gores has survived. A facsimile of these gores has been used in the production of “Magellan’s Globe”. This globe, which is 18cm in diameter, is presented on a separate hand turned wooden base.
This globe was used as reference by Hans Holbein, for the small terrestrial globe in his famous masterpiece ‘The Ambassadors’. We have pulled Holbein’s Globe from his painting and is available on a similar stand to Magellan’s.
