Seventh Picture of L'Hermetisme dans la vie de Swift et ses Voyages by Eugene Canseliet

Copyright, Fata Morgana 1983.

All these images are details of the First picture.
This is in my opinion a picture of the chaotic stage (black background) of the Materia used in the Opus Magnum.
We see the mineral subject, containing the hidden quintaessencia (black 5 pointed star) and also source of the Water of the Sages.

On the left, the antimony symbol containing a little flake, maybe allegorical of the inner Spiritus, Niter, or Mercury it contains. On the left a sphere seemingly representing the Mercury in another form, from the mineral suject.
