Atlas Week: Bavarian Atlas

On this Day in the History of Art: Geoffrey Chaucer tells the Cantebury Tales (1397)

Because the Atlas Shrugged movie just came out I thought it would be fun to post a week of images of Atlas by various artists.
Location: Linderhof Palace, Germany
I do not know if this Atlas is made of stone or plaster. I hope it is made of plaster because the thought of some enormous stone sphere perched atop a building is frightening! Either way, this is a fantastic sculpture.
