Confronting dragons which one finds in medieval art and particularly in European or Muslim hermetism originate in the imagination of the far east. Traditonally, Hermes’ caduceus is made up of two serpents wound in the figure of 8 around a stick surmounted by two wings. It is the symbol par excellence of the domination of the spirit over matter by the balance and integration of opposing forces. The serpents or the dragons as demonic symbols are identified with the human beings’ animal instinctive nature which must be mastered. Alchemy uses the dragon as a symbol of philosopher’s mercury. The dragon is also the guardian of hidden forces, treasures which are buried, and in many traditions it procures immortality.
