We made this 1.8 metre diameter globe of the world prop with a 3 metre diameter ring to top the marquee entrance of the Goodwood Revival Ball. The ring which surrounds the globe had to be lightweight and fixed in position very securely due to the height it was being displayed.

Because the globe had to be lightweight yet support a very large diameter ring, and be suspended 24 feet in the air, this was a bit of a challenge. The globe was sculpted in polystyrene and the ring was welded to a structure which we bonded inside the polystyrene globe.
The client was happy with the globe and especially with the engineering that went into fitting the ring to the polystyrene globe.
