What is The Flammarion engraving

The Flammarion engraving.

L'atmosphère: météorologie populaire

The Flammarion engraving is a wood engraving by an unknown artist, so named because its first documented appearance is in Camille Flammarion's 1888 book L'atmosphère: météorologie populaire ("The Atmosphere: Popular Meteorology").[1] The engraving has often, but erroneously, been referred to as a woodcut. It has been used to represent a supposedly medieval cosmology, including a flat earth bounded by a solid and opaque sky, or firmament, and also as a metaphorical illustration of either the scientific or the mystical quests for knowledge.

Thank You

It's a very interesting picture -it evokes much thought.
I seem to remember seeing it on an album cover a long time ago. Could it have been Pink Floyd?

Firmament

No, not Pink Floyd.
And, no album cover I'm aware of.
