EL GLOBO 1





Illustration from Michael Maier's 'Atalanta Fugiens'- 1618. Maier also composed a 'soundtrack' to go with the book. Alchemical illustrations such as these, together with a passage of text (and music in Maier's case), invited the reader to make interpretations and associations. 





Scene from Fellini's 'Eight and a Half'.
