The British manufacturer of globes decided to loudly declare its position and help Ukraine. In what way - we will tell in today's material!
The British company Bellerby & Co Globemaker decided to support the inviolability of the constitutional borders of Ukraine in its field - cartography and the creation of globes.
The company page says: “After a sudden and unprovoked invasion by an aggressor on the sovereign territories of another state, we decided to clarify how our globes represent the borders of Ukraine now and in the near foreseeable future.
These borders can only be changed if the will of the people of Ukraine so requires. It is the will of these 42 million people, and not of one deluded and deranged person who, we hope, will soon lose his power.”
Bellerby & Co Globemaker is currently finishing work on a unique globe of its kind, which has no analogues and never will. Several people are working on the handmade globe, including Ukrainian Anastasia. The 3D model of the planet will then be auctioned off. 100% of the proceeds will go to help Ukraine.
What is special about this globe?
The design is based on the classic Livingstone globe with Ukraine's constitutional borders engraved on it. In addition, Anastasia will bring in several important details that will make the globe unique.
Patterns in the style of the legendary Petrikovskaya painting will be applied to the free space in the Pacific Ocean. Nastya depicted the color of viburnum and berries. Kalina is an important part of Ukrainian folklore and culture. Mention of the plant can be found in songs, decorative arts, embroidery, and poetry.
The symbolic roots of viburnum can be traced back to the traditions of Slavic paganism thousands of years ago. According to legend, viburnum was associated with the birth of the universe, as well as the so-called. Fiery Trinity - Sun, Moon and Stars. Viburnum berries symbolize home and native land, blood and family values. Today, a bunch of viburnum berries has a more mundane meaning - it is depicted on the insignia of the Ukrainian army.
As for petrikovka, this is a traditional Ukrainian style of decorative painting. The origins of the style lie in the village of Petrikovka, Dnepropetrovsk region of Ukraine. There, local residents used it to paint the walls of houses and household items. The earliest copies of the work date back to the 18th century. Interestingly, Petrikovka is an example of a style that lives and develops to this day. Thanks to contemporary artists, the style is getting a sensible rethinking interspersed with modern trends while maintaining traditional elements.
The globe will be 36 centimeters in diameter. The land will be done in warm brown shades, and the oceans will be done in a soft ocher shade. The phrase-slogan "Glory to Ukraine" will be hand engraved on the handle.
