{Part II} Behaim led the construction of the Erdapfel and provided the cartographic information that informed the illustrations.
.
He took his vision of the world from a number of sources, ranging from the historic geography of Ptolemy to the explorations of Marco Polo.
.
While the globe turned out to be quite beautiful as an object d’art, its accuracy as a geographic instrument was out of date even in 1492.
.
The Erdapfel is covered in a cornucopia of beautiful little illustrative details, including over 100 miniature objects and figures. These include flags; saints; kings on their thrones; animals such as elephants, camels, and parrots; fantastic beasts such as a sea-serpent and a mermaid; and boats that share the seas with painted fish.
.
As to the actual mapped aspects, there’s pretty much just one large land mass, representing a Eurasian continent, surrounded by islands and ocean. The measure of the coasts and placement of major geographic features were inaccurate even by the standards of the day, and the globe also featured such elements as the phantom Saint Brendan’s Isle, a long-rumored, mythical island that never existed. .
Still, Christopher Columbus would not return from his American expedition until a year after the creation of the Erdapfel. In its moment, Behaim’s globe could pass as not wholly unrealistic.
.
Behaim gave the globe to the Nuremberg city council, which held onto it until the 16th century, when they finally gave it back to the rather disinterested Behaim family, who put it in storage.
.
The family’s apathy may have ultimately saved the Erdapfel, however, as it remained essentially forgotten until the 19th century, when later generations rediscovered the artifact. Behaim’s descendants lent the globe to the German National Museum in Nuremberg in the early 20th century, and in 1937, it was purchased for the museum at the behest of Adolf Hitler himself, who felt that such an important German artifact should remain in the country.

Time flies, hard to believe I graduated from the RA schools, exactly 10 years ago..... my mum cried when she saw the show, not because she was amazed by it but because she had no idea what I'd done, didn't like it and was like what are you going to do now.....that all changed when Saatchi took an interest.... cheers mum...

If the world’s oldest surviving globe has taught us anything, it’s that just when we think we’re starting to figure out how the world works, turns out we barely know anything at all.
.
Known formally as the Erdapfel (literally “Earth Apple,” or in some colloquial translations “potato”), the oldest globe is an impressive and beautiful artifact, even if its cartographic science is a little off.
.
The Erdapfel dates back to 1492, and is far from the first globe ever created, but it is, so far, the oldest discovered terrestrial globe still in existence.
.
Round representations of the Earth go back to Ancient Greece, and the earliest spherical maps of the world were being created in the Islamic world in the 13th century or earlier. But none of those are thought to survive. Other than descriptions and flattened maps that would have covered earlier globes, the Erdapfel is the oldest remaining artifact of its kind.
.
Also called the #BehaimGlobe, the construction of the Erdapfel is credited to the 15th century polymath Martin Behaim. Behaim, a German, was a well-known geographer, merchant, mariner, and philosopher. It was after his travels across the Known World, to places such as Portugal and the West Coast of Africa, that he returned to his native Nuremberg, where he convinced the city council of his hometown to commission a globe from him.
.
Behaim may get the credit, but it actually took a number of artisans to complete the project.
.
It’s made of hardened strips of linen that were formed around a clay ball and then pulled away. These delicate halves were then joined around a wooden frame.
.
The map art on the surface of the globe took a small team to complete. Foremost among them was the artist Georg Glockendon who, along with the painter Hans Storch, did the actual illustration work. Later, a scribe came in to add some 2,000 place names.
.

Snow globes are always very special for me even if I have thousands of them. Maybe they don't have any function but when I see them somewhere in my room, it can easily make me happy.

What to know about today’s / tonight’s #StrawberryMoon2019?
.
The Name Has Nothing To Do With Its Colour.
.
Although the Strawberry Moon might appear to have a reddish hue, that’s purely a coincidence that can happen to the moon at any time of the year.
.
Instead, members of the Algonquin tribe originally gave it the fruity title because it coincided with the time their strawberries were ready to harvest.
.
It’s The Smallest Full Moon.
.
The Farmer’s Almanac also refers to the orb as a “mini moon” since it is at its farthest orbit away from Earth and therefore appears 14% smaller.
.
It’s The Lowest Moon.
.
The Farmer’s Almanac explains that its low-level is what causes it to take on an reddish, amber hue, especially if the air is humid, something that can occur throughout the year.
.
It Has Inspired Wedding Traditions.
.
June was traditionally the most popular time for couples to plan their weddings, something the Farmer’s Almanac claims gave them good luck for their marriage.
.
The amber hue of a Strawberry Moon also inspired the name “honey moon” and is rumored to be the inspiration behind the same name for a couple’s post-wedding honeymoon vacation.
.
The June 2019 full moon is rising in Sagittarius, a zodiac sign that is known for being adventurous, energetic, and free-spirited.
.
If you are into this sort of thing .. a full moon is always a time of release, and kind of a time of wrapping things up. It's the end of one lunar cycle and signifies the beginning of another one, so instead of thinking of this as a time to do something new, think of it as a time to step away from the things that haven't been serving you over the last few weeks or months. That allows you to wrap up what you started in the month's new moon phase, and move towards next month's new moon phase as well. And with the energy of Sagittarius behind you, this is definitely doable.

Uneducated sailors were the main sources for artists & writers trying to describe life in the ocean. So, their reports of monsters—from the singing sirens that lure sailors to jump to their deaths to the the lobster-like “octopuses” & various serpents and worms—became the basis of natural history texts and drawings on maps.
.
These maps then helped perpetuate the life of these creatures, as they inspired travelers on the dangerous sea to confirm their existence.
.
However, at the end of the 17th century, sea monsters start to disappear from maps. European understanding of science was growing, & the printing press made the spread of realistic images easier. “As technology advanced, as our understanding of the oceans and navigation advanced, more emphasis was placed on human’s ability to master the watery element: to sail on it and conduct trade on it,” Van Duzer told Lapham’s. “And thus images of the dangers of the sea, while they certainly did not immediately disappear from maps in the 17th century, became less frequent over time, and images of ships became more common.”
.
There were still illustrations on maps, but they were far more pragmatic. Ships indicated areas of safe passage, while drawings of fish & whales showed good fishing areas.
.
On one map from the early 17th century, vignettes illustrated how to kill & process a whale. “Whales, the largest creatures in the ocean, are no longer monsters but rather natural marine storehouses of commodities to be harvested,” wrote Van Duzer. Some of the mystery is gone as the sea becomes another resource rather than a churning darkness to be feared.
.
Just when you think that we’ve lost that sense of awe at the sea, captured in these old maps & texts, we are reminded that much remains to be discovered in the ocean. Recently both the giant squid & 15-foot megamouth shark were filmed for the first time, & there is still plenty to learn about each. We’re still dazzled by bioluminescent light displays in the deep, or the surreal, shimmering movements of schools of millions of tiny fish. The awe continues—it’s just based on fact rather than fantasy.

Even Flat Earthers have to appreciate Townsend's Patent Folding Globe.
.
A 19th-century schoolteacher from Vermont, Townsend found it difficult to teach his students geography using two dimensional maps, which he claimed offered "a false illustration, and [could] be understood only by a process of reasoning entirely beyond the mind of the child." To address the problem, he developed his folding globe as an inexpensive alternative to the wall maps prevalent in classrooms.

Patagonia is home to one of the largest Welsh communities outside of Wales, especially in the Chubut region of Argentina. Settlers first arrived in 1865 in Puerto Madryn and over the years spread inland, creating settlements like Gaiman, Trelew, Trevelin and Dolavon.
.
The Welsh culture has been retained across the region. For example, you can find road signs in Welsh as well as family owned tea houses serving an elaborate Welsh tea.
.
We sought out several teahouses for Welsh tea including Nain Maggie in Trevelin and Ty Té Caerdydd in Gaiman where Princess Diana famously had tea in 1996. Welsh tea features a variety of cakes and tarts, including the renowned torta negra (Welsh cake) made using recipes handed down by previous generations.
.
One of our favourite fun facts about Patagonia: the East coast of Patagonia is a popular breeding ground for whales. They reproduce every 2-3 years, opting for the safe and quiet waters around Peninsula Valdés in Chubut.
.
One of the best places to see them is in Puerto Madryn or by boat trip from Puerto Piramedes, between May to December, when they come right up to the shore to give birth and raise their calves.
.
This area is also famous for a having a lot of wildlife like penguins, seals, sea lions and killer whales (orcas).
.
Dino fans will love this fun fact about Patagonia: the fossils for the largest ever dinosaur that walked our planet was found smack bang in the middle of Patagonia on the Argentinian side.
.
This dinosaur is still unnamed but is known to have been a herbivore, measuring 42m in length and weighing 76 tons. To get an idea of its size, a statue of what it would have looked like has been recreated just outside of Trelew so you can visit and pretend you're in Jurassic Park.

Haven’t done a big group photo shoot in a long time! There’s still another 10 or so in the house and at least 15 at the shop that didn’t make it in. The map in the background is a doozy; chalkboard map of the United States dated 1898! See any you can’t live without? I’m ready to unload a ton of them (so I can go buy more!)
