The Plane and Globe Model: A Classic Desk Piece
Did you know, that the globe as you see it today, took quite a bit of time to come into being? In fact, constructive efforts were periodically put in by imminent scholars and scientists before the globe achieved its modern shape. The earliest model was constructed in 150BC in Turkey.
However, one of the earliest preserved forms, the Farnese Atlas, was sculpted in Italy in 150AD. And, the oldest terrestrial version of the globe came about in 1474 and was created by Martin Behaim of Germany. Therefore, it was essentially a gradual metamorphosis that gave the modern day globe model its present form!
