This design is inspired by Carl Orff’s musical composition ‘Carmina Burana’ and is based on the Wheel of Fortune which was used on the cover of the score. The lyrics were derived from a mediaeval collection of poems, with the original manuscripts containing many beautiful illustrations. These were a great source of inspiration whilst creating the concept for this artwork. The figure in the centre represents the Goddess Fortuna: Fortuna Imperatrix Mundi (Fortune, Empress of the World) and she controls the fate of those on the wheel.
