Orphic Egg

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
