THE LION - RED
Size: 48" x 48"
The lion in alchemy is a symbol held in the highest regards of the tradition. The “royal” beast as Jung referred to it represents virility, strength and courage. Often portrayed as a green lion devouring the sun, it is a metaphor for the state in which a person’s consciousness is overwhelmed with desires, destruction, and violence. It is through the expression of these emotions that the person may ascend and achieve enlightenment.
