Special Bonus, this World Globe Ships FREE!



This 18th Century armillary is an intriguing mix of early science and Greek mythology. One of the legendary Titans battling Zeus was defeated and it was decreed that he must forever carry the weight of the world on his mighty shoulders.

Our armillary dial, however, depicts Atlas carrying the entire universe. That’s to say the known Renaissance universe, when the earth was still believed to be at its center. Conforming to the Ptolemaic concept of the universe, the small sphere in the center represents the earth. Surrounding the earth, 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. This exquisite composition will provide a dramatic accent to your home or office decor.

Note: As with all of our authentic, antique reproductions, this armillary is intended to be displayed and viewed for its artistic value rather than as an accurate scientific or cartographic reference source.
