The Ancient Greeks already knew that the earth is a sphere. From that moment on, humans began crafting sculptures of our planet. The oldest one is the Farnese Atlas in Naples, from the 3rd century BC. However, the earliest terrestrial one is from 1492. Designed by Martin Behaim in Nuremberg, it is said to have inspired Christopher Columbus. As you know, a spherical map of the world is much better than a two dimensional one. Since flat maps are based on projections, they are pretty inaccurate. Now, you can have a globe 3D puzzle!
We have a 3D jigsaw puzzle globe for everyone in the family! Some of our models are for kids, easy to assemble, and some are quite difficult. Since we are avid travelers, we are obsessed with our planet and have selected only the best models. We have wooden and foam cardboard models.
