Description

The dragon is the slain Atmavictu. The Cabiri were the deities celebrated at the mysteries of Samothrace. They were held to be promoters of fertility and protectors of sailors. Friedrich Creuzer and Schelling held them to be the primal deities of Greek mythology, from which all others developed. They appear in Goethe’s Faust, part 2, Act 2, and in Jung’s fantasies during this period.

INSCRIPTION TRANSLATION :

“IV Jan MCMXX [1920] This is the caster of holy water. The Cabiri grow out of the flowers, which spring from the body of the dragon. Above is the temple.”
