With the help of a lever you can rotate the globe.
At the same time a little ball representing the moon by means of a concentric mechanism while spinning around the earth moves closer or farther and the whole (Sun, Earth, and Moon) rotate on the axis of the standing foot, allowing a map to display a different zodiac sign and the seasons each month.
