      30 years before the first shot of the American Revolutionary War was fired, French cartographer Gilles Robert de Vaugondy collected surveyed maps from explorers of the new world, piecing them together to create a complete portrait of the world as it was known. Vaugondy then wrapped these maps on terrestrial globes and sold them to the upper class worldwide.

      Centuries ago, craftsmen made globes by gluing copperplate printed gores on a plaster finished paper mache core. We revive this technique for our own reproduction globes.

      $ 125.00
      • $ 208.95
      • -40%

      Product Description

      Ship’s hourglasses were timed to the half hours of the ship’s watch. Ship navigators kept exact count of the hours: galleons wrecked on the Western Australian reefs represent the dangers of incorrectly kept time at sea.

      As a display, the hourglass reminds us that time is fleeting — it’s an important reminder to forgive trifles, to spend time and attention on the things you love, and to notice and appreciate the things that are good in life.

      • Renaissance-era painters included hourglasses in their still life works to symbolize time
      • Visual reminder that time is fleeting, and best spent on the things that matter most to you
      • Represents the past (bottom), future (top), and the present (middle)
