The sum process of the seven steps in alchemical translation. Quetzalcoatl, the god of knowledge, is coiled around the Tree of Knowledge (inscribed with the symbols of the seven steps of alchemical transformation) and guarding the forbidden fruit (the golden apple) in the Garden of Eden. The Philosopher's Stone enables us to transform the primordial lead of ourselves into the alchemical gold of enlightenment. Done in watercolor pencil, brush, Rapidoliner, Hunt 102 crow quill pen, marker, and colored pencil. Phew.

Very interresting... It's the first time I see the Snake being represented by Quetzacouatl. That gives a new sense to the whole story...
