Another archetype  is the  fire. It holds a symbolic value of destruction and purification. it symbolize also strength and is connected with evil and mystery as well. In this non objective picture we can well see the fire flame, but we can also see floating shadows inside. The colors are only the black and the red, with many shades and contrasts.

A dream image representing the albedo, step of alchemy.  Albedo is one of the four major stages of the magnum opus; along with nigredo, citrinitas and rubedo.  Following the chaos of the nigredo stage, the alchemist undertakes a purification in albedo, which is literally referred to as ablutio – the washing away of impurities. See references about albedo

Surrealism pictures are a branch or better the ancestor of photography based digital art. It is an “old” tachnique, started with the darkroom and used by surrealists as Salvador Dalì in some works of photography. The technique is known as photomontage and consistes in mounting more images into one.
