Step into the world of the Renaissance with our Equatorial Sundial, a timeless instrument that captures the beauty and mystery of the universe. This stunning reproduction is inspired by equatorial sundials made in Italy during the Renaissance, and is both easy to construct and interpret.
Crafted with care and precision, our Equatorial Sundial features a flat surface aligned with the celestial equator, and a gnomon or post that acts as a terrestrial axis. The shadow of the stick will show the time on the inner part of the circle, making it easy to read and interpret.
But this is no ordinary sundial - it is a universal instrument that can be used in all latitudes, and can also be read as a calendar thanks to the small sphere incorporated into the gnomon. Handmade in Spain and fashioned out of wood and brass, our sundial is both beautiful and functional, capturing the timeless appeal of ancient navigation and timekeeping.
As you hold this sundial in your hand, you will feel a sense of wonder and curiosity - just like the great minds of the Renaissance who used similar instruments to navigate the world and explore the mysteries of the universe. This sundial is a tribute to the ingenuity and creativity of our ancestors, and a reminder of the enduring fascination of the universe around us.
