Aurora Consurgens - 02 An allegory of entombment
Type of Spiritual Experience
Being entombed was a major way of provoking a rebirth experience. It also produced visions and out of body experiences.
The picture not only shows these events but also the other sensations - being pierced with swords and being consumed.
