Blue Terra Celestial Globe II
Made in Japan, the Blue Terra maps the universe's vast celestial grid.
This small (8.3" diameter) celestial globe comes from Japan and is made of recycled paper with a steel base. It depicts the mythical figures of ancient Greek constellations, which are then written in English and Japanese.
This style of globe has been produced by a small company in Japan since 1937. The main difference between the two Japanese constellation globes is the steel axis frame present on one of the two globes (see photos).
