Earth Mother

According to alchemists, everything on earth is intrinsically connected to each other. The prima materia, or the basic element found in all matter, is the starting material required for the magnum opus, the creation of the Philosophers’ Stone. For me, the prima materia is associated with the powerful, creative energy of women.
