Atlas Armillary Sphere


This extremely weighty piece shows Atlas carrying the weight of all the heavens on his shoulders.  On this Ptolemaic armillary, with the Earth as the centre, the elegant framework of rings represent astronomically important features such as the tropics of Cancer and Capricorn, the ecliptic, the solstitial colure, and the trajectories of heavenly bodies.
