Rome Sunburst Armillary Sundial and Roman PedestalCelebrate the sun in several ways by adding this Rome Sunburst Armillary Sundial and Roman Pedestal to your landscaping. These two cast iron pieces are sure to bring lasting style to your garden, while their gray hues enhance the classic motif. Armillaries were used for centuries as celestial globes, with rings corresponding to the meridians and parallels on a modern globe. The robust, intersecting bands on this item create the orb shape, while Roman numerals on the horizontal arc form a timepiece. The brass color of the numerals and sunburst accents contrasts the gray of the item, and a matching, 20" long arrow completes the unit. This arrow acts as a gnomon, casting its shadow over the numerals to indicate time. For an accurate reading, face this item celestial north, which is simple to do thanks to the cardinal directions on the base of the piece. Adjust the angle of the gnomon to match your latitude for even more precision, and rest the armillary on the included Roman Pedestal. This column furthers the kit's classic theme, while offering an extra 20" of display height. Its cast iron construction ensures a hardy piece, and the gray tone meshes with the sundial. Highlight your appreciation for the sun with this Sunburst Armillary Sundial and Roman Pedestal. Assembly required.
