This globe rotates silently using only the energy of room light and the force of the earth’s magnetic field. The globe rests on an attractive three fingered stand (included.) An optical illusion, the globe appears to rotate in spite of resting on the stand, in quiet defiance of commonly held ideas about the laws of friction. All of these elements create a beautiful, magical object that provides a meditative point of focus to any room. Globe is 4.5 inches in diameter.
