Zodiac Man as Mirror of Earth and Stars

Folio 16 verso

1416: Musée Conde at Chantilly

At the end of the calendar in Très riches heures appears this curious illustration. It shows a man in conjunction with the zodiacal symbols. It demonstrates one of the basic tenets of astrology: how "Man" (sic) the microcosm is controlled by the heavens, the macrocosm.
