The 18th century Atlas armillary has an interesting mix of early science and Greek mythology. This piece features Atlas carrying the entire universe. That's to say the known Renaissance universe, when the earth was still believed to be at its center. Gracefully intertwined silver rings symbolize the position and trajectories of heavenly bodies around the Earth. In all aspects ethereal, science combined with beauty, myth with historic fact.
Heavyweight polished granite base
Aluminum cast Atlas statue, antique patina
