Columbus Was Wrong

After creating this wonderful sculpture, I struggled to find a fitting name. My husband and I debated this problem for quite a while, and finally suggested "One World". The image does resemble a globe, but flat. My husband suggested naming it "ColumbusWas Wrong". We haven't been able to say it without a smile since. Now that you know the story, I trust you will smile too!

I love the explosion of color changing from every angle. Add to that the fact that the glass holder twists, and I could have named it after a Chubby Checker dance.
