From @raisa_maciel: “I don’t care about the light, or about the bed, I just want to take a little nap // This sweet little boy is called Pequeno Nicolau Flamel, he is 6 months now, he was 2 in this pic. He lives in Brazil and only looks like an angel while he is sleeping. He is a playful boy, full of energy and love!” #catsofinstagram
one of the classic symbols of alchemy - the green lion devouring the sun. As with most of the striking, and to the modern mind, somewhat 'surreal' images which populate these works, they have a bewildering range of possible meanings.
Nicholas Flamel is one of the most mysterious and legendary Alchemists in the World. Like many other Alchemists he started out being relatively unknown. But now his name has been immortalized in books and films. He even gets a mention in Harry Potter. #HappyHubDay
