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 in Photoshop 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.
