Postcard - ‘The four men, or brothers’.
In the row on the left symbolize the four elements. As soon as you kill one, all the others will die too. This shows the strong relationship between the elements. Michael Maier (1568-1622) describes phases from the alchemical process in Atalanta fugiens, 1618.
