1) I'm familiar with the usual presentation of the four stages of human life represented on the wheel but I was curious about the twelve figures depicted here. Is this based on any sort of traditional designs of the Rota Fortunae I am unaware of or should I presume that the director took creative liberties with the concept?
2) Going on the assumption that there is a Wheel of Fortune design that depicts twelve characters what are the Latin names of the other six characters?
I have searched through Wikipedia, an online Google Book called Emblems and the Manuscript Tradition which mentions six figures War Peace Wealth Poverty Pride and Humility, a few websites devoted to alchemy, astrology and tarot readings but so far nothing definite has shown up. I've used the search terms " twelve figures Wheel of Fortune " and " allegorical figures wheel of fortune " as well as several combinations of the latin names above with " wheel of fortune " or " rota fortunae " I thought I'd give you folks a shot before I decide to throw in the towel. thank you in advance!
