The Astrological Year
This exquisitely remastered digital rendering of an ancient zodiac evokes the mysticism of a foregone age where astrologers were thought to be magicians, and many were highly respected scholars, believing that the movements of the stars governed the emotions and actions of earthly beings.
In the words of the medieval theorist Kepler, "It is clearly evident that most events of a widespread nature draw their causes from the enveloping heavens." What the ancients defined as "influx" thus became transformed into our modern vocabulary as "influence."
Who could possibly forget the fabled "star crossed lovers" of Shakespeare's Romeo and Juliet, or these words from the Tempest:
My zenith doth depend upon
A most auspicious star, whose influence
If now I court not but omit, my fortunes
Will ever after droop.
This print embodies the mysticism of the pre-scientific age and invites the viewer to experience its wonder, and serves as a tangible reminder of the power of "influence."
Offered in precision handcraft gold leaf, silver leaf or white framing.
