Monumento a Urania en el Jardín de las Delicias de Sevilla


Urania was the Greek muse of astronomy and astrology, generally considered the daughter of Zeus and Mnemosyne. Here she appears in an Italian baroque sculpture from the 18th century, from the Archiepiscopal Palace of Umbrete. We see the muse bare-chested, holding a world sphere in her left hand and some documents, probably astronomical charts, in her right, in an arrangement full of elegance and beauty.
