Postcard - ‘Nature teaches nature, in order to fight the fire’.
In the field of metals it is the intention that one learns how to stand and endure the heat of the fire. Michael Maier (1568-1622) describes phases from the alchemical process in Atalanta fugiens, 1618.
There is a brief explanation of the image on the reverse of the card.
