Cosmico - XXXIII

Genius of the World

Cosmico is the last of the three universal principles, he is seen as the embodiment of the world. Shown as a winged young man, an angel, he holds the globe in his hand. His posture seems more accomodable than those of Iliaco and Chronico, he looks at the watcher.

Now that we've been made aware of the life force (Sun), time and space (world), we can proceed to the cardinal virtues.
