In Greek mythology, the Titan Atlas was responsible for holding the weight of the heavens on his shoulders, a burden imposed as punishment by Zeus.

Father of many stars, and protagonist of one of Hercules' famous works, Atlas was also known as a wise man and founder of astronomy.

It is for this reason that in this composition I decided to merge this interpretation of Atlas with an Armillary sphere, which represents the cosmos from the terrestrial perspective.
