To describe the stark allure of winter, we turn to Basho, who said "Winter solitude in a world of one color — the sound of wind.” Our Winter Evening globe captures the icy blue of the cold months, casting a monochromatic glow over the beautiful, quiet landscape. Keep your globe out of direct sunlight. Sunlight shining through the water is a magnifier and can cause a fire. Sunlight can also cause the water to discolor. Dust with a soft cloth. Glass cleaner is fine on the globe. CoolSnowGlobes are made of glass and are not toys for children.
