Focused, enduring presence... After the
Titans were defeated by the Olympians, Atlas the Titan was condemned by Zeus to
stand at the edge of the earth & bear the weight of the sky on his shoulders.
Many legends attribute Atlas the Titan as the teacher of astronomy to mortals.
Mythology tales also portray Atlas as responsible for guarding the pillars that
keep the Earth and sky apart. Early drawings & sculpture portray Atlas
supporting a celestial globe, but in more modern designs Atlas is often seen
supporting the weight of the earth on his shoulders.
This detailed Bronze with patina finished resin replica accents the strength and
grace by which Atlas endures his challenge. The 12" bronze metallic
globe ball offers deep earth tone colors, full raised relief and a full metal
die cast meridian with antique finish. Made from 100% reclaimed
paperfiber. A Replogle globe.
