Athanasius Kircher : “Typus Sympathicus Microcosmi cum Migacosmo” (1650)

Archival Inkjet on Matte Finish Fine Art Paper

The Ibis’s giclée process uses archival pigment inks on 100% cotton rag paper to achieve crisp detail and rich, lasting color. Unlike posters, they will not yellow with time, but will maintain their original quality for as long as you own them. If you are unhappy with your print for any reason, you are welcome to return it for a full refund.

This “figure of sympathies between the microcosm and the macrocosm” shows the influence of heavenly bodies upon the systems of the human body. Astrological symbols indicate the seven ancient planets and the twelve signs of the zodiac. It was presented in Athanasius Kircher’s Musurgia Universalis (1650), in which the Jesuit scholar argued that the harmony of music reflected the proportions of the universe.
