The Prayer of Christian Rosenkreuz

75.00

I looked back, and behold it was a fair and glorious lady, whose garments were all sky-coloured, and curiously (like Heaven) bespangled with golden stars; in her right hand she bore a trumpet of beaten gold, on which a Name was engraved which I could well read but am as yet forbidden to reveal it. In her left hand she had a great bundle of letters of all languages, which she (as I afterwards understood) was to carry to all countries. She also had large and beautiful wings, full of eyes throughout, with which she could mount aloft, and fly swifter than any eagle.

__ from Book One of The Chymical Marriage of Christian Rosenkreutz, trls. Unknown, 1612

The Prayer of Christian Rosenkreutz is part of a series Thomas van der Krogt is creating based on The Chymical Wedding of Christian Rosenkreutz,a staple of Western Esoteric literature that is subject of many products in development by Three Bones Society. Van drer Krogt has created a series of woodcuts, a printmaking technique that uses a wood suppoort, that bring a contemporary flair to the story through placing the drama in a near and some would say present dystopian feature. The print is hand pressed.
