The Twelve Keys of Basil Valentine - Key 05



Type of Spiritual Experience


A description of the experience

On the right a woman stands beside a rectangular plinth (possibly a furnace, though no flames are visible). A flask on the plinth contains liquid from which fumes are rising. The women holds a heart from which grows a seven-blossomed rose. The top of the flask either goes behind or connects to the woman's head. Beside the woman stands an alchemist with bellows. Flames emerge from his mouth and the top of his head. In front of the plinth or furnace a blindfolded cupid aims an arrow with his bow at the woman. On the left stands a lion with a crown above his head. His left paw, claws extended, reaches out towards the cupid. Above the lion shines a brilliant sun
