Description

Print based on the theme of 'Astrological Tables' that was printed in the 1780s. From a set of three, the first engraving shows a Sun centred celestial sphere encircled by the ring of the Zodiac along with the Earth and Moon. The various layers in each of the three tables represent the relationship between the human humours and the four elements of the world in Greek Aristotelian philosophy.
