This is an original artwork by A Forest of Shadows. Featuring the Spirit of Mercurius, inspired by Alchemy and Carl Jung. Mercurius stands at the beginning and end of the work: he is the prima materia, the caput corvi, the nigredo; as dragon he devours himself and as dragon he dies, to rise again in the lapis. He is the play of colours in the cauda pavonis and the division into the four elements. He is the hermaphrodite that was in the beginning, that splits into the classical brother-sister duality and is reunited in the coniunctio, to appear once again at the end in the radiant form of the lumen novum, the stone. He is metallic yet liquid, matter yet spirit, cold yet fiery, poison and yet healing draught – a symbol uniting all the opposites. This is an original piece on Daler Rowney 250gsm Paper, using acrylic paint, fine liner pen and metallic pen. It is A3 size. *Please note the frame is for photographic purposes only and NOT included!
