Durer's Armillary Sphere. Albrecht Durer (1471- 1528) was a German artist. His skillful use of perspective and mathematical proportions made him one of the outstanding artistic figures of the early 16th century. This woodcut depicts the globe surrounded by seven circles and twelve wind gods. It is based on an armillary sphere, an astronomical device that shows the circles of the celestial sphere surrounding the Earth. These include the north and south pole, the equator and the Tropics of Capricorn and Cancer. Taken from Dr Willi Kurth's The Complete Woodcuts of Albrecht Durer (1936).
