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

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.”
