Atlas Armillary

 
 
Unique World Globes from www.seasidetreasures.com
 
Item # GL051
 
18th Centaury Atlas Armillary.
 
 
 
An interesting mix of early science and Greek mythology: One of the legendary Titans battling Zeus was defeated and decreed to carry the weight
 of the world on his mighty shoulders.

Our Armillary dial, however, has Atlas, made out of aluminum,
carrying the entire universe on a granite base.

That’s to say the known Renaissance universe, when the earth
was still believed to be at its center.

Gracefully intertwined brass and aluminum rings symbolize the position
 and trajectories of heavenly bodies around the earth.

In all aspects ethereal, science combined with
beauty, myth with historical fact.

•Desktop Model with Granite Base, Brass & Aluminum Rings.

•18th Century Design, Aluminum Atlas Figurine.

•10 Inch Diameter, Armillary.

•10" X 10" X 22"
