filed under: Antimony written by: Theun

Alchemical symbols for Antimony in its variety of forms, is strongly reminiscent of the Globus Cruciger an object representing the Earth to be held by a king. This book by Atte Jongstra has on it’s cover a print by Joannes van Doetichum (1577) entitled: “Deze beschitt de geheele werrelt.” Where “beschitt” (to shit upon) closely resembles the Dutch for “bezit” (to own).

The Dutch royal Globus Cruciger plays a part in the crowning ceremony, but is not held by the new sovereign.
