Allegorical representation of Alchemy expressing the exoteric and esoteric knowledge – open and closed book – and the nine-step ladder that tells us about the path that leads to the conquest of mystical knowledge.
The original is on the facade of the Cathedral of Notre Dame de Paris. On the central column between the doors of the cathedral is a medallion with a woman and a ladder with nine steps leaning on it, holding a book in one hand and a scepter in the other. This image symbolizes the Scala Philosophorum, the Philosopher’s Ladder, the nine stages of alchemical work leading to the Philosopher’s Stone, transmutation.
