The egg symbolizing the universe with the serpent of creative life force encircled. How do we break out of the shell of our paradigm and emerge renewed?
“The egg is a germ of life with a lofty symbolical significance. It is not just a cosmogonic symbol — it is also a “philosophical one”. As the former it is the Orphic Egg, the world’s beginning; as the latter, the philosophical egg of the medieval natural philosophers, the vessel from which, at the end of the opus alchymicum, the homunculus emerges… the spiritual, inner, and complete man.”
~ C. Jung
Based on Jacob Bryant’s, Orphic Egg, 1774
