The Authentic Models Replica 18th century Atlas Armillary is a artisitic construction of an ancient Greek myth. In the Greek story, Atlas was a legendary Titan who battled Zeus, the God of thunder. After his defeat Atlas was sentenced by Zeus to carry the Earth on his mighty shoulders until the end of time.
However, the Authentic Models Atlas is carrying the entire universe! That is to say, the known Renaissance universe, where the Earth was believed to be at its centre. The gracefully intertwined silver rings represent trajectories of heavenly bodies around the Earth, in all aspects ethereal. This globe is a celebration of myth and fable combined with science and historic fact.
Attention to Detail
Attention to detail is key. The statue is a reproduction of an 18th century original and the statue of Atlas has been hade made from aluminium cast and antiqued patina. The intertwined rings are made of solid brass that has been expertly aged with a bronze finish to give it a beautifully antiqued look. The heavyweight granite base has been hand polished to a wonderful shine. This globe would be a beautiful accessory to place in a sophisticated library or study.
