From the first time we saw the bizarre physiognomy of the alchemical hermaphrodite we fell in love with the idea – So strange and attractive at the same time. The sense of balance the figure send to us was so inspiring that we needed to share with you all.
Our very personal version of the hermetic Rebis (“Double-Being”) transpose the coitus of the Sun and the Moon into the organic realm.
The alchemical production of the Rebis or Hermaphrodite is the expression of equilibrium in human understanding. It is no coincidence if we find the astrological Libra as similar representation. We also find in the taoist Yin- Yang a very good equivalent.
Despite some contradictions, the union usually represents the marriage of the Red King (Sulphur, the Soul) and the White Queen (Salt, the Body) and from their copulation the Mercury (Spirit) is born.
