Flammarion – Vintage Engraving – Unisex Heavy Blend Hooded Sweatshirt
The Flammarion is a woodcut engraving by an unknown artist, so named because its first documented appearance is in Camille Flammarion’s 1888 book L’atmosphère : météorologie populaire.

One of the elements of the cosmic machinery bears a strong resemblance to traditional pictorial representations of the “wheel in the middle of a wheel” described in the visions of the Hebrew prophet Ezekiel. The caption that accompanies the engraving in Flammarion’s book reads:
‘A missionary of the Middle Ages tells that he had found the point where the sky and the Earth touch…’
