Atalanta fugiens emblems hand coloured by Adam McLean

I recently turned the amazing Atalanta fugiens into a multimedia animated sequence.
In making this animation I painted hand coloured versions of the fifty pictures that make up the Atalanta fugiens series. I believe this hand colouring makes these images even more accessible, and I have tried to use a consistent colouring scheme to emphasise the various elements of the symbolic sequence. I include below my 50 coloured emblems as small thumbnails.
