Look, we all have seen a globe on more than a few occasions. Recently we got a look at the art of globe making, which was certainly interesting. Today however, the typical globe gets reworked into something unique and quite amazing by Michael Plichta. This unique and rather eye-catching design is artist, eye-catching and one of a kind, rocking a 12-inch Mars globe showing the famous mars canal map by Percival Lowell.

This traditionally handcrafted globe Shows the historical map by astronomer Percival Lowell. Lowell believed that the fine dark lines were irrigation canals built by a supposed intelligent civilization on Mars.

The iconic and legendary map is brought to life on the 12-inch globe in stunning detail, which adds a new element to the world of globes. The design features uncanny design, all hand made and in stunning fashion, making for something not only one of a kind, but certainly a conversation starter! Check out the design in the images, and the short video below and speak your mind on it after the jump.

In his famous book “Mars and Its Canals” from 1905, Lowell published the mars canal map.
