The Joust of Sol and Luna

Posted by on Monday, September 21, 2015 Under: Art



The Joust of Sol and Luna from the Aurora Consurgens an alchemical treatise of the 15th century famous for the rich illustrations that accompany it. It is interesting to note that the emblems on the shields are inverted so that Sol's shield has a lunar (moon) emblem, while Luna's shield carries a solar (sun) design.
