The floor-standing Majestic Apollo Extra Large Italian Globe on Casters is a stunning antique reproduction piece of furniture and as true a replica as a twenty-first-century work of sixteenth-century globe furniture art can be. It is made by Zoffoli, the world-renowned Italian manufacturer that has been crafting antique-style globes for over 60 years.

Apollo, the Greek god the Majestic Apollo extra large Italian globe on casters was named after

The finely detailed 16th-century map depicted on the extra large Italian globe on casters is an accurate reproduction made by master Italian cartographers in the traditional manner using layers of printed paper gores, as are all globes in Zoffoli’s Classic Globes Collection.

The impressive 24-inch true replica 16th century map world globe features a full calibrated gold-colored metal meridian that encompasses the entire vintage style Italian globe.

The antique reproduction world globe rotates fully, and the hand crafted legs and floor stand are made from solid beech wood that has been stained a classic chestnut color to match the equatorial zodiac ring.

This exquisite work of antique globe furniture art makes an extraordinary centerpiece in any large, traditional room and can easily be moved because the superbly turned chestnut-shade solid hardwood floor stand is equipped with casters.

The manufacturer Zoffoli named this impressive floor-standing extra large globe after Apollo, one of the most important and complex of the Olympian deities in classical Greek and Roman religion and Greek and Roman mythology. The ideal of the kouros (a beardless, athletic youth), Apollo has been variously recognized as a god of music, truth and prophecy, healing, the sun and light, plague, poetry, and more.

Apollo is the son of Zeus and Leto, and has a twin sister, the chaste huntress Artemis. As the patron of Delphi (Pythian Apollo), Apollo was an oracular god—the prophetic deity of the Delphic Oracle.
