Splendor Solis


Splendor Solis

The sun is the ruler of Leo, the sign of the zodiac to whom according to the inscription on the base, the matter should be thrown on the base as food.
The green wings of the monster in Glockendon's original version support the thesis of Hartlaub (G.F. Hartlaub, ''Sigma Hermetis'' in : Deautschen Vereins fur Kunstwissenschaft, Berlin, 1937),
that this is a representation of green vitriol, a highly corrosive sulfurous acid code-named ''Green Lion''.
The phase of digestion is assigned to the sun.

S. Trismosin Splendor Solis, London, 16th century
