Microcosm means “small world,” and in the thought of the Renaissance, it was applied specifically to human beings, who were considered to be small-scale models of the universe, with all its variety and contradiction. The macrocosm aspect comes into play when you understand these were macro photographs of marbles, stacked and composited with everything in focus.
