Some time back I posted pictures of my discworld. Recently it suffered a fall and one of the elephants (Great T'Phon I believe) became dislodged. Accordingly I undertook restoration and made some upgrades. The disc's orientation was improved. A ring of degrees (or something) was added to the base. The orbit of the small sun was included. Some deformation of the shell was corrected.
The turtle moves.

It looks splendid now.

That is one handsome looking piece - I'm glad it's back to good a new.

Wow, that's great! (Have I seen it before...?? Where am I...Huh eh??)  Huh

It does seem to be ever improving over time! Have you considered a way of putting in the rimfall?

Nice work! Grin Haven't read my Discworld books for a while. Might be time to dig them out again - then again, it might be best to wait until uni holidays!

The edge is a bit rough. Maybe I should add the rimfall. Stay tuned.

It was unbeknownst to me that the world was carried on, not just the backs of pachyderms, but on a most sizable turtle. I say, this is quite the revelation!

Did you know that the color or magic was all about the birth of new diskworlds.
