Tapping alchemy—an ancient science which aims to find the formula for immortality and omniscience—Ignasi Monreal weaves its symbols in the gift catalogue.
Eclectic motifs including a crown, the fish (resembling mercury) and the moon, are revealed in diverse illustrations. A man and woman, signifying the Great Hermaphrodite wears a sweatshirt with the vintage Gucci logo and a Double G necklace. Alchemists believed that when opposite forces (such as a man and woman) are harmonized, creation could be achieved. The Hand of Mysteries, an alchemic image believed to hold the keys to divinity, is painted by the artist in colorful detail, adorned with crystal studded bracelets on Web stripe straps.
