The Homunculus the Alchemy of Blood and Artificial Life (or the making, care, and education of a homunculus.)
The Homunculus  the Alchemy of Blood and Artificial Life (or the making, care,  and education of a homunculus.): An Illustrated Lecture with Brian Cotnoir

Date: Tuesday, November 16th
Time: 8pm
Admission: $10
Location: Morbid Anatomy Museum, 424 Third Avenue, 11215 Brooklyn NY

The Homunculus is a miniature form of human life artificially created. After briefly outlining some very basic alchemical ideas and medieval theories of reproduction we will look at how these ideas were put into practice by examining the 13th century Liber Vaccae (Book of the Cow) a collection of, as one scholar said, "elaborate experiments in unseemly generation and obstetrics." The homunculus is mentioned again by the 15th century alchemist Paracelsus who, alluding to the secrets of the philosophers, reveals the method of making a homunculus and its talismanic use, which will again be revealed in tonight's talk.

Brian Cotnoir is an alchemist, artist and award-winning filmmaker. Author of The Weiser Concise Guide to Alchemy, the Emerald Tablet, and Alchemical Meditations, he is currently writing his next book, Alchemy: The Poetry of Matter. He has presented seminars and workshops around the world on various aspects of the art.

Tickets are non-refundable unless the event is canceled.
