Mystras Armillary Sphere On Natural Slate Plinth
Designed and hand-forged exclusively for Foras, our Mystras Armillary Sphere has been created by a highly-skilled artisan based in Norfolk
Sourced locally for authenticity, each Mystras Armillary is hand-crafted to order in a bold imposing solid steel and enhanced by a clear coated lacquer which catches the light.
Forged from mild steel the armillary is designed to age and oxidise over time, and as such has not been powder-coated.
Presented on our Surmi Natural Slate Plinth with it’s rustic textured finish, our exclusive Mystras Armillary with it’s striking astronomical design is guaranteed to impress!
Stability is ensured by the addition of a Brindal sandstone base with a 50mm brace onto which the Natural Slate Plinth is secured.
Invented circa the 3rd Century BC, armillary spheres traditionally consist of spherical frameworks of rings representing longitude and latitude, as well as other astronomically important features, all centred around the Earth or the Sun. They were also used heavily in renaissance art to represent wisdom and culture.
