Splendour of the Seas!          

Armillary Spheres

Sculpted and fabricated for Royal Caribbean Cruise Lines' Splendour of the Seas, two spheres were completed. The smaller three foot diameter sphere was made along a more conventional design. The larger second sphere, the Planet Sphere, has planets positioned around its body. Both spheres were constructed mainly of aluminum with a powder-coat finish. The planets were steel spheres.
