The first known globe to include the New World is engraved on an ostrich egg

WOW! SERIOUSLY!?! WHAT? AMAZING!

An old egg and the New World
This globe shows North America. So far nothing remarkable. However, how about this: the globe is an engraved ostrich egg and is 500 years old. In fact, it was produced in 1504-1506, so likely still during Columbus’ life time (he died in 1506). Another remarkable fact related to this egg: it labels North America as “Mundus Novus,” the New World - a new and revolutionary designation when the egg was engraved. Check out the link above for more information about this fascinating artifact - Columbus’ egg, of sorts.
