You’ll never lose your place in a book again with this original magnetic bookmark!
This bookmark features the famous Oratory& Laboratory engraving from Heinrich Khunrath’s ‘Amphitheatrum Sapientiae Aeternae' (Amphitheatre of Eternal Wisdom).
We see the alchemist Khunrath himself kneeling in his Oratory, a place of meditation and prayer. On the other side of the hall is his Alchemical Laboratory, where he investigates the properties of matter, works on transmuting base metals into gold, prepares chemical medicines, and reflects on the preparation of the Philosophers’ Stone as a metaphor for his own spiritual rebirth. The musical instruments on the table symbolise the harmony of the spheres and the concordance of different elements in his practice.
Whether you are reading for work, pleasure or study, let Heinrich Khunrath be your guide through it all!
