Original, digitally composed artwork made from scratch, directly inspired by the Tarot Major Arcana of Temperance, or in some decks, "Art".

The card itself describes the harmonization of opposites. The masculine and the feminine, the high and the low, the divine and the material - each finding harmony somewhere between the polarities. Though these opposites seem to be leagues apart, with this card we come to understand it is perception that sets them so far apart. In truth, they are separated by a thin membrane of nothing. These opposites have been right next to each other all along - it was perception, ego, and expectation that has kept them apart. Here, we see the divine at the back of the material - the Angel guiding the trance of the Supplicant, who holds a bleeding Rose Cross in his hands. The Cross - the cube "unfolded", representing the expansion toward a divine consciousness.

Contained in the overall message of Temperance we learn to find the Philosopher's Stone, to finish the Great Work so we might understand that we've only just begun - that here, with this new understanding we might truly move forward from the vantage point of the totality.
