Mova Rotating Silver & Black Metallic 4.5-Inch Diameter Desk GlobeItem#: HN-TTD003
Globe, Display stand
The MOVA Rotating Silver & Black Metallic 4.5-Inch Diameter Desk Globe gleams with striking ebony oceans and metallic silver landmasses. Inspired by the earth itself, this unique globe is one of the world's most advanced. It rotates silently without the need for batteries or power cords. Create a tasteful display in your home or office with the included 3-fingered acrylic base.
The MOVA globe is powered only by natural light and the force of the earth's magnetic field. It contains an inner globe that rotates within the fixed acrylic outer shell. The space between them is filled with a clear, non-toxic fluid that provides buoyancy and prevents contact between the two globes. The inner globe, floating and turning in a virtually frictionless environment, is akin to the earth itself. A highly efficient drive mechanism within the inner globe ensures rotation in virtually any ambient light. Solar cells harness that energy, and a magnetic element reacts to the earth's magnetic field in the manner of a common compass to provide torque.
The optical properties of both the outer shell and fluid have been carefully chosen to magnify features on the inner globe. As a result, the outer globe appears to rotate despite resting on the stand, in quiet defiance of commonly held ideas about the laws of friction. This globe measures 7.25 inches high with the display stand. Beautiful and arresting, it will form a meditative point of focus for any room.

Comments about Mova Globes Mova Rotating Silver & Black Metallic 4.5-Inch Diameter Desk Globe:
I bought one for my home to suspend on a statue I have with a pair of cupped hands...the "He's got the whole world in His hands...". I think it's really special and sends a message without being "in your face".
I plan to purchase a second one, the more traditionally colored, for our churches world missionary board to help catch peoples eye to an otherwise unremarkable display.
