Interstellar travel has been a source of fascination for mankind for centuries. Since it has been established that the Earth is not alone in space, there has been no end of speculations what other planets may look like. Nowadays, we are a bit more knowledgeable about the planets closest to us, and some fantasy theories have become a thing of the past. Our interest in other planets has not gone away though. Although the career of an astronaut is just a dream for many people, you should not give up your passions. It’s a good idea to express them by choosing our planet wall stickers that will decorate your room and serve as a daily reminder of the extraordinariness of the universe and the discoveries that await you there. Choose our planet stickers– their secrets are awaiting!
Probably everyone can name the planets in our solar system. While this can be considered basic and obvious knowledge, there are more reasons for it. The planets closest to Earth bear the names of gods of Roman mythology, and as a result they are sometimes associated with the respective gods’ domains and character traits. Suffice to mention, for example, the famous book by a relationship counselor John Gray "Men Are from Mars, Women Are from Venus". That is why we recommend familiarizing yourself at least roughly with the meanings the planets have in our culture. This does not necessarily have to be a criterion for selecting your wall stickers though. You can choose them based on scientific facts or simply aesthetic considerations. So here's a handful of information that will definitely be useful when it comes to considering a sticker design.
Mercury – this is the smallest planet in our system and the closest to the Sun. The ancient Greeks associated it with Hermes – the ever-running messenger of the gods. Interestingly, "mobility" was also attributed to it by Assyrian astronomers, who referred to it as "the jumping planet". Research into Mercury is still ongoing, although our knowledge of its surface is already quite substantial.
Venus – a planet that has always been an inspiration for dreamers and poets. Partly due to being named after the Roman goddess of love, but also because it is the third brightest object in our sky after the Sun and Moon. Restless souls can enjoy the view of Venus in their room every day by decorating it with a sticker. Culturally, this planet and its astronomical pattern has also become a symbol of femininity.
Mars – the famous red planet, named after the god of war, associated with blood and fire because of its color. In opposition to Venus, it is associated with the male element. Although Mars is probably the most explored planet, it has always been the greatest source of inspiration for UFO spotters and science fiction creators. To this day, the word "Martians" is clearly associated with green folk from a different planet. Mars wall stickers are therefore not only an attractive red addition to a room, but also an expression of an attempt to solve a cosmic puzzle...
Jupiter – for a change, this is the largest planet in our solar system. No wonder then that it was named after the most important of all Roman gods. You can bring this sense of strength, power and dignity to your home with the help of an appropriate wall sticker. A planet like Jupiter is also an aesthetic design in itself, distinguished by attractive colors. Also, the phenomena occurring on the surface of the planet itself give an interesting visual effect that is reflected in its appearance.
It is worth considering who will enjoy cosmic room decorations the most. Many would notice that it is a great choice for children. No wonder that our range includes stickers dedicated to them. The planets on the walls will have a dual function – they will serve as both a colorful, cheerful decoration and an educational accessory, encouraging children to broaden their knowledge. So if your child has always been fascinated by interstellar travel and plays toys spaceships and rockets, then these stickers will be a source of great fun and enjoyment. Planets on the walls are a dream for many little astronauts!
However, it is also worth considering this type of decoration, even if astronomy has never been your passion. Why? Natural patterns have always delighted humans with their beauty – and in space they can be observed on a much grander scale. Planets, whose surfaces can have unusual and vivid colors, suspended in dark, starry space, are a motif captivating even for those who have both feet on the ground due to its sublimity and beauty.
