An interesting mix of early science and Greek mythology: Atlas was one of the legendary Titans battling Zeus. After his defeat Atlas was sentenced to carry the Earth on his mighty shoulders till the end of time... 

The Atlas of our armillary dial is carrying the entire universe. That’'s to say the known Renaissance universe, when the earth was still believed to be at its center. Gracefully intertwined silver rings symbolize the position and trajectories of heavenly bodies around the earth. In all aspects ethereal, science combined with beauty, myth with historic fact.
