Hermaphrodite of the Sun and Moon emblems hand coloured by Adam McLeanI have now (July 1999) painted hand coloured versions of the thirteen pictures that make up the Hermaphrodite of the Sun and Moon 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 thirteen coloured emblems from the Hermaphroditisches Sonn- und Monds-Kind, Maintz, 1752, as small thumbnails. I am in planning to incorporate the Hermaphrodite of the Sun and Moon sequence into a multimedia slide sequence similar to the the Atalanta fugiens multimedia slide show I have recently produced.
