Product Description

     This is the Orb of Society.  As you can see, it is a small sphere that has a pyramid on it.  It shows various social classes that have existed through past civilizations.  The top has a Minecraft-esque figure holding a staff.  The reason the various steps down are blank are because the steps have been different throughout past civilizations.  They all have one thing in common, a top authority.  This could be anything from King to Pharaoh to Dictator to Emperor to Caliph.  The various steps down could be anything from slaves to scribes to farmers to priests.  The steps going down show that he/she has authority over all of them.  The shape of the object was inspired from Minecraft's very own Ender Pearls and Eyes of Ender.  The steps down were inspired from the ranks in Minecraft's Mineplex server.  The history of this unique object goes all the way back to Akkadia, the world's first empire.  It was given to Sargon, the emperor, to protect as it holds all of the futures civilizations.  Who gave it to him is unknown.  Some of the reasons you might want to print it is because of its visually appealing nature and Minecraft-esque physique.  It could also give kinesthetic learners a hands-on way to learn about social classes.  As you can see, I clearly designed the Orb of Society with Minecraft in mind.  I hope that the Orb of Society will soon become a real 3D object.
