An ideal addition to your office, study, or child's bedroom, the Waypoint Geographic Mariner II Globe is decorative, educational, and illuminating. Built into the center of the globe is a soft-glowing LED light, controlled via an inline on/off switch. The globe features a current political map of the world with each country thickly bordered and designated its own unique color. Topographical features, both land and oceanic, are also represented. The globe is held fast by a silver-finished metal meridian and is perched on a round wooden base with a dark cherry finish.
