Alchemy implemented Allegory, which explained reactions through symbols, meant that a picture, the most common being a dragon devouring a sun, represents a chemical reaction. The symbolism was used to stump those who were not truly dedicated to the work of alchemy.
The symbol for Mercury is the caduceus, which is two serpents entwined upon a rod. This is derived from Greek mythology, using the story of Mercury, the god’s messenger, and his intervention between two fighting serpents. This symbol was depicted both with and without wings.
