Hi!

I am mostly trying to find where does this drawing belong, do you know in which book it was published?

I already tried with google typing all the most obvious words "tree alchemy", "tree hyle chaos alchemy", "elemental tree", etc... but I can't find the source.

Thank you, Otove!!!

I was quite sure that it had to be something by Llull, mostly because the words in the drawing are written in Spanish and that's quite uncommon. I thought it was either by Lull or something very recent that was emulating an "old" style.
Thanks a lot.

I wanted to talk to you later about an idea I have related to your seizure paintings, but in a few days.... right now I am busy as hell.
