Solve et Coagula



This picture represents an allegory of the alchemy motto "solve et coagula". Not just an joke for charlatans but an hidden way to discover the sense of the life. I like hermetic language and I put in this picture a lot of simbols of this fascinating discipline.

This is also the first work I made with a graphics tablet.
It's a strange illustration but I love it.

The Bouguereau "Ravishment of Psyche" was used to reproduce the main pose of the characters.
