As Above So Below by CircleArt
“That which is Below corresponds to that which is Above, and that which is Above, corresponds to that which is Below, to accomplish the miracles of the One Thing”. This sentence is from the “The Emerald Tablet” of Hermes Trismegistus, father of Hermeticism. Other translations of this sentence can be found here: http://www.sacred-texts.com/alc/emerald.htm.
This is a pen and ink drawing that I brought into Photoshop, duplicated, and rotated. The original image of the tree and spiral root took me about 15 minutes to draw. I then spent over an hour getting the spiral roots of the two trees to connect in a pleasing way. If anyone knows where to find spiral templates please email me, I am spirally challenged.
