Armillary Sphere

Armillary Sphere
Antique Reproduction Armillary Detail View
Click to enlarge image(s)
Intricately detailed, this bronze armillary sphere is a stunning desk display of the ancient celestial sphere. Once accepted as epitomizing the height of learning and wisdom, the armillary still retains much of its ancient mystique, proving its continuing appeal to the broad and cultured of mind.

Conforming to the Ptolemaic concept of the universe, the small blue sphere in the center represents the earth. Surrounding the earth, gracefully intertwined bronze rings symbolize the position and trajectories of the heavenly bodies which circled endlessly around the earth in their measured march around the celestial sphere. The constellations of the Zodiac are each painstakingly positioned on the bronze band encircling the celestial sphere at precisely 90 degrees. The authentic full ring meridian is boldly marked in 10 degree increments for convenient yet exacting user reference.

This exquisite composition is certain to provide a dramatic accent to your uncompromisingly “worldly wise” home or office decor.

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