Inspired by “The Secret of the Golden Flower“, a Chinese Taoist classic about neidan (inner alchemy) meditation translated by Carl Jung.
This is a Symbolist work, a dream vision inspired by Jung’s writing:
[…] “Hun” [Animus] means "cloud-demon," a higher "breath-soul" belonging to the yang principle and therefore masculine. After death, hun rises upward and becomes shen, the ‘expanding and self-revealing’ spirit or god. […]
“P’o” [Anima] written with the characters for "white" and for "demon", that is, “white ghost“, belongs to the lower, earth-bound, bodily soul, the yin principle, and is therefore feminine. After death, it sinks downward and becomes kuei (demon), often explained as the "one who returns" (i.e. to earth), a revenant, a ghost. ~Carl Jung
