whole world in his hands
here's Bubbie with Spoonflower 6", 9", 12" and 18" globes in his hands - or lap, as the case may be.
I had no idea that the 18" globe would seem so enormous. It won't stay long at our house; I think it's destined to belong to a school or a library. It sucked up an entire large bag of stuffing, wow!
