Postcard - ‘The Hermaphrofite or Rebis is born'
Emblem 38/50: The Hermaphrodite or Rebis is born on a twin-peaked mountain; one is the abode of Hermes, or Mercury, the other of Aphrodite, or Venus. It is hard to reach the tops, i.e. to make the Rebis in the laboratory. Michael Maier (1568-1622) describes phases of the alchemical process in Atalanta fugiens, 1618.
