Postcard - ‘The philosophical egg’.
"The philosophical egg'. When the egg breaks, new life is born. In alchemy, death or destruction leads to rebirth in another form. 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.
