Postcard - ‘The Hermaphtodite’.
Emblem 33/50: The Hermaphrodite, or Rebis, is the symbol of the unity of the universe. This unity, however, manifests itself as a duality, as an active and a passive principle. Michael Maier (1568-1622) describes phases of the alchemical process in Atalanta fugiens, 1618.
