NewConstellation of Leo Zodiac Sign

Style# 626
Muses, Myths
$1.25 - $7.00

An excellent way to carry art with you. This piece features Leo from Urania's Mirror revamped from whimsical antique astronomy etchings circa 1824.

I have meticulously restored, revamped and collaged all 12 Zodiac signs. There are so many stunning ways that people have illustrated Astrology over the years but these vintage maps are certainly one of my favorites.

In 1824 a boxed set of 32 constellation cards were published in London. The cards were clearly inspired by the Celestial Atlas by Alexander Jamieson published a couple of years earlier. There was a black and white set of cards as well as a colored set. In some editions of the cards small holes were punched into the cards so as to appear to be small stars in the sky when held up to a light. Many of the constellations are not recognized by astronomers today.
