Hermes Trismegistus (Ancient Greek: Ἑρμῆς ὁ Τρισμέγιστος, "thrice-greatest Hermes"; Latin: Mercurius ter Maximus) is the purported author of the Hermetic Corpus, a series of sacred texts that are the basis of Hermeticism.

Lately I have been looking into alchemy, it has many interesting symbols and its great to read about something thats basically esoteric science that people used to practice (some still do). ANYWAYS !

Illustrator Pen tool nightmare.

I have also been trying to incorporate advices I have recently received from some awesome people.

Thanks for using your eyes to look at this, stay cool !

This is truly awesome.  I love the alchemical symbolism, and how you've related the proportions to the head of the adept (ie, "Hermes").  Great work.  I'm feeling inspired, and actually have been thinking about getting that symbol done as a tattoo, now more than ever.
