Coronelli’s Idea of the Universe’ - 1690
Magnificent celestial chart representing the major astronomical and astrological theories from classical times to the end of the 17th century. The central image is a large celestial planisphere incorporating the rotations of the planets and signs of the zodiac, surrounded by four blowing windheads and five planetary diagrams.
Surrounding the large central image is a border containing 28 smaller circular diagrams offering further data and reference material including a perpetual calendar, the zodiac, the theories of eclipses and a cross-section of the Earth showing the various circles of Hell according to Dante's Divine Comedy.
Our reproductions are handmade in our Los Angeles studio, using only high resolution files printed on archival cotton weave canvas. They are twice varnished with a Polymer gloss that ensures UV protection and enhances the colors. Decorative wood is assembled on the top and bottom, with two eye-hooks mounted on the top piece. We also supply a jute rope that can be attached between the two eye-hooks to give the map that old pull down map feel.
During the restoration process, we pay great attention to matching the colors to the original maps. Please note that your computer screen might display slightly different colors than our professionally calibrated monitors.
