Wow! Quite a beautiful piece! What is the inside constructed with? That must have taken some time (and patience) to build!

the skeleton consists of curved frames that has mortises along it and other wood sticks are joined to it and covered with stained glass

Ok, I had to search to see what “gerehchini” was …. Now that I see, I think you’re doing a good job at it . Neat globe.

And if anybody else is wondering … ”Gerehchini is a kind of art in Iran that is made from wooden sticks joined together with mortise and tenon joints and sometimes filled with stained glass.”
