I Create Large Earth Globes From Gypsum And Natural Pigments (16 Pics)

My fascination for globes started when I was a kid. I always wanted a giant globe just like the ones in museums and the movies, and a few years ago, I decided to make one.

Talking about globes, I also have a cat shelter with over 200 cats, and we have been previously featured on Bored Panda! You can find the post by clicking here

One single purchase could cover the costs for all of our cats in months to come, so we wouldn’t need to rely so heavily on donations. If anyone is interested in a personalized large world globe, get in touch and I’ll make you an art piece that no one else in the world has!

After dozens of failed attempts and almost 2 years later, I finally made an 80 cm (31.5″) globe that shows incredible detail and looks even better than I hoped for!

The colors look real because of the natural pigments used and the incredible detail is given by the satellite imagery data map that was made with software developed from scratch

Depending on the room lighting, the globe colors change and it always gets WOW reactions from everyone, especially from children!

Now I’m working on a globe with a magnetic surface so that you can put flags or pins on it, or even trace out a route for a future trip!

Stunning! Very detailed and carefully made. I really like it! (Also the cats are a nice touch. Do they come included or no? :P)

Forgot to add the label "cats not included" unless your're nearby and want to adopt :)
