AAP4 Quinquerosa:

QUI 1Quinquerosa is the alchemical symbol of the five petaled black rose with the microcosmic pentagram representing the Opus Magnus; the perfection of man.

The triangular clock reflects the alchemical principle of the paradigm threefold man. Salt, mercury and sulphur are harmonised with the four elements, earth, water, fire and air, coming together in the seal of Solomon, or six pointed star.

In solid pewter and brass, with quartz clock movement.


Three plays an unmistakably fundamental role in all religions. Christianity has its trinity and also heralds three virtues - faith, love and hope. From Egypt we have Isis, Osiris and Horus and in Hinduism Brahma, Vishnu and Shive.

Water is the element of three and the triangle & water are heavily associated in alchemist medical signs.

Three is also frequently encountered in tales of quest and rights of passage. Commonly fiary tails and myth speak of three tests or riddles that one must withstand or solve.

The triangle shares in the symbolic significance of three. In antiquity it is sometimes regarded as a symbol of light. Often the triangle is used as a sign for God and is extensively used by Freemasons.
