TABLE LAMP VII GLOBE
The first lamp that I made of calabash (kind of gourd) brought from Senegal.
It is a precise model of the globe. Meridians and circles of latitude are marked every 20 degrees; the contours of the continents and islands are reconstructed accordingly. The land is marked by a deeper layer of white wood. The lamp has no holes other than the meridians and circles of latitude which allow light to pass through them. The globe consists of two hemispheres held together by little magnets attached inside.
It can also be revolve around its axis.
The base is carved in wood. The supporting 'stem' is finished off with linen string.
Diameter of the gourd is 23 cm, and lamp is 40 cm high.
