Atlas - Giclee Print

Atlas ( Greek god ) was a Titan, one of the elder gods, father of the Hesperides. He was condemned by Zeus to bear on his shoulders the weight of the heavens.

‘Atlas  --  ‘atlas’ ‘atlantis’ and ‘Atlantic’ are considered by language scholars to derive their origins from the greek word ‘tlâo’, meaning ‘to ensure’ or ‘to bear’, recalling atlas’ role as bearer of the vault of heaven.’ -  'Gateway to Atlantis' -  Andrew Collins

'After the slaughter of Medusa, Perseus, bearing with him the head of the Gorgon, flew far and wide, over land and sea. As night came on, he reached the western limit of the earth, where the sun goes down. Here he would gladly have rested till morning. It was the realm of King Atlas, whose bulk surpassed that of all other men. He was rich in flocks and herds and had no neighbour or rival to dispute his state. But his chief pride was in his gardens whose fruit was of gold, hanging from golden branches, half hid with golden leaves. Perseus said to him, "I come as a guest. If you honour illustrious descent, I claim Jupiter for my father; if mighty deeds, I plead the conquest of the Gorgon. I seek rest and food." But Atlas remembered that an ancient prophecy had warned him that a son of Jove should one day rob him of His golden apples. So he answered, "Begone! or neither your false claims of glory nor parentage shall protect you;" and he attempted to thrust him out. Perseus, finding the giant too strong for him, said, "Since you value my friendship so little, deign to accept a present;" and turning his face away, he held up the Gorgon's head. Atlas, with all his bulk, was changed into stone. His beard and hair became forests, his arms and shoulders cliffs, his head a summit, and his bones rocks.'  -- Bullfinch Mythology

And Atlas through hard constraint upholds the wide heaven with unwearying head and arms, standing at the borders of the earth before the clear-voiced Hesperides; for this lot wise Zeus assigned to him - Hesiod
