Notes

An unusual patinated bronze with marble mantel clock of Atlas holding up the heavens. This theme is from the Greek myths, Atlas fought with the Titans in the war against the Olympic deities. As punishment, he was condemned to bear forever on his back the earth and the heavens and on his shoulders the great pillar that separates them.
