Postcard - ‘Woman feeding a toad with her milk’.
Woman feeding a toad with her milk. Together they represent the third stage in the preparation of the Philosopher's Stone when dry matter (the toad) should be made more pliable by adding water (the woman). 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.
