Emblem 1: The Alchemical Fountain
« on: September 20, 2007, 04:37:13 PM »





Mylius' Philosophia Reformata version:



Translation of the German verse:
Quote
We are the beginning and first nature of metals,
Art by us maketh the chief tincture.
There is no fountain nor water found like unto me.
I heal and help both the rich and the poor,
But yet I am full of hurtful poison.
You can always come back, but you can’t come back all the way.

   [Bob Dylan,"Mississippi]

It is very interesting, that on the coloured fountain emblem, all the stars
have different colours. On other emlems of this fountain, the stars are
all yellow.
The stars have 6 points, a very special meaning hidden in the six points,
other stars on alchemical emblems show seven or five points.
