The base is inscribed with a New Orleans French Quarter scene on one side and the Natchez Riverboat on the other. Inside the globe, there is a New Orleans French Quarter street sign and light post on one side and a horse drawn carriage on the other. In the middle is one of our old French Quarter buildings. And don't forget the snow. It does snow in the big easy about every 10 years. A great gift item, poly resin, 3" x 4".
