Description

Atlas led the Titans in a rebellion against Zeus and was condemned to bear the heavens upon his shoulders. He was appointed guardian of the pillars which held earth and sky apart. He was also the god who instructed mankind in the art of astronomy, a tool which was used by sailors in navigation and farmers in measuring the seasons. These roles were often combined and Atlas becomes the god who turns the heaven on their axis, causing the stars to revolve.

Here he is seen holding the heavens on his shoulders in the form of a great sphere bearing the signs of the Zodiac. The sphere opens to reveal a compartment within.

This beautiful and functional piece is made from cold cast bronze which gives it a very solid weight and rich texture.
