Reminds me of the old alchemy symbol image of a bird pecking at its side or of A swan swimming in a pool of red liquid, or a pelican feeding it’s young. Reaching a black stage in alchemy supposedly meant the artist had worked correctly in preparing the compounds which make up the composition.
Alchemical symbolism regarding the creation of the philosopher’s stone of alchemy dry path
VITRIOL visit the interior of the earth and there by rectification find the occult lapis. The rebis or two thing depicts the alchemical hermaphrodite. A wedding of the sun and moon. Ancient alchemists such as Rhasis and Hermes (from the pyramids) used to write he who unites the male to the female draws forth the hidden virtue. Pyramid means fire in the middle. Sal non tingit is an old Latin alchemy term which meant the salt does not tinge unless it be tinged. The saffron colored material was also called the fire salt and the fire lizard among other things. The image depicts the process and ingredients of the philosopher’s stone creation in condensed alchemical symbolism. Many alchemists wrote the secret process of the magnum opus was very difficult for outsiders to figure out even if the ingredients were known. The philosopher’s stone of alchemy was said to have been wrapped in wax as the final and necessary step in the creation of the lapis philosophorum.
