Holbein included two globes, one terrestrial and one celestial, in his most famous painting “The Ambassadors”. The terrestrial globe was based on a globe made to celebrate Magellan’s circumnavigation of the world in 1522 (see Magellan’s Globe).
All our globes are handmade with traditional techniques so there may be slight variations in the globe size and colour.
