The Rosicrucians

"The Rosicrucians" ink, watercolor, gold paint

The cross of the Rosicrucians, a mystic sect of mediaeval Germany. They "held a doctrine 'built on esoteric truths of the ancient past', which, 'concealed from the average man, provide insight into nature, the physical universe and the spiritual realm. '" I got the imagery from watching Jodorowsky's Holy Mountain, one of my favorite movies. In the scene where the master is showing his disciples examples of holy mountains throughout the world, he describes the 9 immortal mystics of Rosicrucianism assembling atop their sacred peak.
