The Sectional Globes are self-assembled, plain globes which can be customized with your own coloring or drawings. The core framework, made of ultra-thin cardboard, is printed with the internal construction of the earth, while the surface sheets depict the outlines of the oceans, continents, and countries. After assembly, the globes are designed to lean at the precise angle of the earth's axis, 23.4 degrees.
