Zoffoli named this extra large floor standing globe after the constellation Aries, located in the northern celestial hemisphere between Pisces to the west and Taurus to the east. This impressive world globe is not to be mixed up with the Gea Virgo, which is a globe bar and can open to reveal a liquor cabinet inside. The Aries is not a bar globe and cannot be opened.

Both the Aries world globe and the Virgo bar globe are part of the Gea Collection (Gaia in English) by the famous Italian manufacturer Zoffoli, a series of globes and bar globes made of high-quality materials with finely detailed ochre and burgundy current political/geographical maps and stylized shapes, showing current countries, major cities, capitals, and even ocean currents.

This Gea floor-standing piece of globe furniture is as substantial in girth as it is in elegance and superb workmanship. The extra large floor standing globe features an impressive king sized world globe that is 24 inches in diameter and showcases an updated, modern political world map that is a lovely shade of mustard and burgundy.

The extra large floor standing globe sits on a floor stand that consists of handcrafted solid hardwood legs that have been stained a lovely chestnut color, and a beautifully laminated and lower base shelf. The floor stand of this contemporary globe is fitted with casters (flush with the base so they are hidden) so this impressive floor globe can be moved from room to room with ease.

The decorative geographical extra large floor standing globe is encompassed by a full meridian of gold colored aluminum, adding a touch of class to this piece of globe furniture.

Drawing of Gaia for Gea Collection product pages

Gaia, Gea in Italian, is a personification of the Earth. {{PD-US}}

Zoffoli’s Gea Collection world globes and bar globes are manufactured using high-quality materials. The actual globe map is printed on pure card stock cellulose that is protected by transparent film, then cut with high precision tools and assembled by hand. The globe sphere rotates for easy reference viewing.

The chestnut-colored stand and picturesque base harmonize superbly with the golden wheat and auburn shades that can be found on the exterior of the earth globe, a signature color combination that Zoffoli simply calls “Gea”.

Zoffoli has passed on the art of crafting world globes in Italy for over three generations. In addition to its celebrated antique-style replicas, it successfully combines traditional Italian craftsmanship with contemporary solutions. The decorative globes and/or globe bar cabinets from the Gea Collection are right at home among modern decor interiors and classic furniture alike, combining old world charm with modern cartography.

The Gea contemporary design globes and globe bars show current countries, major cities, capitals, and even ocean currents. So not only is a Gea earth globe by Zoffoli a beautiful piece of Italian decor and furniture, but the decorative world globe is also an educational tool and reference source.

It may not be that clear why the manufacturer named this collection Gea because in English it is actually Gaia. In Greek mythology, Gaia is the personification of the Earth and one of the Greek primordial deities. Gaia is the ancestral mother of all life: the primal Mother Earth goddess. So it is perfectly fitting to name a globe design collection after this deity.
