The engraving of Khunrath’s Laboratory is familiar to the analysts of alchemy. On left side of the engraving is the oratory, the other, the lab. It was the table in the middle that caught my eye today.
The tablecloth reads “Sacred music puts sadness and malevolent spirits to flight, because the spirit of Jehovah sings happily in a heart filled with holy joy.” (Klossowski de Rola, 1988) On this table are other objects including writing implements and a set of scales. Maybe in this, Khunrath is showing us what the fruit of his alchemical labours is.
