Caption: The winds of Earth. Diagram depicting winds coming from various directions. Each is associated with an origin, such as Europe or Africa, a demonic source to depict the malevolent side of wind and a controlling archangel to show how wind can be a force for good. Each direction is also associated with a astrological symbol. This engraving comes from Medicina Catholica by Robert Fludd, printed at Frankfurt in 1629.
