Hermaphrodite of the Sun and Moon emblems hand coloured by Adam McLean

I 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.
