The Imagery of Alchemical Art as a Method of Communication
by Samuel Scarborough
Alchemy is one of the most mysterious arts practiced in the Western Mystery Tradition partly because it has a rich use of allegorical symbols and images. In this article we get a chance to explore those symbols and images as a means of understanding alchemy on a practical and spiritual level. This article is just an introduction to the rich art of Alchemical Images for use in the ancient tradition, and hopefully will stimulate the read to further reading into this “royal art” of the Hermetic Arts.
