A handsomly simple armillary, and a decorative piece for any modern household. This ancient celestial tool is plated with bright, polished nickel from the outside ring all the way to the center sphere. Outermost ring features an arrow pointing to the heavans, while sturdy nickel base supports the orbits above. Invented in Greece half way through the 3rd century, the armillary sphere is one of the oldest astronomical instruments. The center sphere represents the Earth or the Sun, while the rotating rings represent other orbiting stars. This celestial decorative is ideal for the living room end table or in the home office. Place it anywhere you need a firm reminder of the heavans above you.
