Extra Large Armillary Metal Sphere Decoration

Decorative metal model consisting of a spherical framework of rings centred on the sun or the earth.  If placed outside, this item will rust creating a more brocante style item that will sit well in any garden.

Invented hundreds of years ago, the armillary sphere is also known as the spherical astrolabe, the armilla, or the armil. The armillary sphere is related to the astrolabe, which was a navigation tool used for determining the position of the sun and stars, and was used by sailors for navigating.
