Planetary Model and Atlas


 ♥ Titan Atlas and Planetary Model Armillary Spheres


Atlas was one of the legendary Titans batteling Zeus. After his defeat Atlas was sentenced to carry the Earth on his mighty shoulders till the end of time. The Atlas of our armillarry dial is carrying the entire universe. That's to say the known Renaissance universe. The Earth was believed to be at its center. Gracefully intertwined silver rings represent trajectories of heavenly bodies around the Earth. In all aspects ethereal, myth combined with science, fable with historic art.

Early man, looking at the heavens, believed the stars were fixed to the inside surface of a rotating sphere. Copernicus gave his name to the theory of an Earth-centered universe, and the Vatican propagated his belief by threatening to burn science heretics at the stake for stating otherwise. We now know that we live on the fringe of a nearly infinite and ever expanding universe. Armillary dials have the earth positioned inside a mesh of hoops, symbolizing the course of the planets as known at the time. The course of the sun is shown by a wide band called the ecliptic circle.

An interesting symbol of the early science and Greek mythology. Atlas carried the weight of the world on his mighty shoulders.
