Italian modeler and designer Paperpino, author of this beautiful and very original paper model says: - "Petrus Plancius (Pieter Platevoet, 1552-1622) was a famous Flemish cartographer. He included new constellations in the austral celestial emisphere. In 1612, he drew 12 gores for a 14.5 cm diameter celestial globe, with eight new constellations inspired to the Bible. For the present model, the original gores published in 1649, were downloaded from the Bibliothèque nationale de France website. The colours of the original file were digitally converted in the “nocturnal” version here presented."
