Story Behind the Art:
In China we take great pride in handcrafting our items. Some of our items are made in a workshop which helps to provide hundreds of jobs in the community where it is located, where work is very difficult to find. However, many of our items are handcrafted in small villages or towns, which helps us to provide for our families without going to a large city. Most of us live very simple lives and we have been doing this type of work for many decades. The knowledge and many of our traditions have been passed down from our ancestors. It gives us much satisfaction knowing we are helping to preserve many dying arts.
There can be over twenty workers involved in molding, shaping and painting just one exquisite piece. Each item is skillfully hand-shaped, or hand-woven by master artisans. Each item is assembled together into intricate items of beauty and art. All of the pieces we create are made with great care and pride. Even the people handcrafting items in the workshop take great pride in knowing they are helping to create the heirlooms of tomorrow, while beautifying your home today.

"how current is the information, the political boundaries and place names on the globe"
Hello doug68, this is an antique globe, so it will not be up to date with every political change. It will be fairly current, however, but not up to the minute. I hope this helps. Thanks for shopping with us!
