" The Lion and the Sun"

The lion attacking or devouring the sun is a motif that appears frequently in alchemical texts. There are many theories as to its significance. Some say it represents a specific chemical process.

Others think it relates to the psychological process os self -improvement and the attempt of our wilder instincts to subdue the person we could become.

In my print, the sun confidently defends itself with its radiance and the lion is stopped. The sun shines on triumphant.
