3861 – Illustration of ‘Astrological Man’
This is a reproduction (cut out from a magazine by Cecil Williamson) of 'Astrological Man' by the Limbourg Brothers (c. 1411).
The signs of the zodiac correspond to different parts of the body; Pisces, is associated with the feet, Aries the ram is connected with the head and so on. Williamson displayed this in the Museum and wrote: "A picture of a later period showing the houses of Zodiac and the parts of the human body which they governed."
