The System of the Universe, from Robert Fludd’s Utriusque cosmi, maioris scilicet et minoris metaphysica, physica atque technica historia (the metaphysical, physical, and technical history of the two worlds), 1617-1621. On that picture, God commands to Nature, which in turn commands to Humanity (depicted as a geometer ape). Angels, stars, planets, elements, animals, plants, minerals, sciences and arts are concentric parts of the diagram. The influence of planets on innermost spheres is also depicted according to Fludd’s theories.
