Postcard - ‘Saturn vomits up a stone on the Helicon’.
Saturn vomits up a stone on the Helicon (which he devoured in place of his son Jupiter). In alchemy Saturn is equaled to lead or blackness. 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.
