Postcard - ‘ Orion was begotten by Apollo’. 

Orion was begotten by Apollo, Vulcan and Mercurius when they gathered their sperm in a bull's hide. Likewise, the Philosophers' Stone has a threefold origin: Sol, Luna and Mercury. Michael Maier (1568-1622) describes phases of the alchemical process in Atalanta fugiens, 1618.
