Microcosm, Macrocosm, 17th Century
Photograph - Photograph
During the sixteenth and seventeenth centuries, notions of macrocosm and microcosm were widely accepted. Many people believed that the same patterns are to be found in the human body (microcosm) on a small scale, as are found in the natural universe as a whole (macrocosm.) A man and an angel (celestial travelers?) are standing on an outcrop of rock, they are looking down on the surrounding countryside; a village and harbor are in the background; the sun is on the left and the moon and stars are to the right.
