The Rebis and the holy hermaphrodite


Personal project inspired by ancient European alchemy and astronomy.

The Rebis (from the Latin res bina, meaning dual or double matter) is the end product of the alchemical magnum opus or great work.

After one has gone through the phases of rotting and cleansing, sorting out opposing abilities, those abilities are united once more in what is from time to time labelled as the holy hermaphrodite.

It is a resolution of soul and matter, a being of both male and female abilities as shown by the male and female head within a single body.
