Alchemic symbology as an allegory of creation and transformation behind BEAST

Alchemic symbology as an allegory of creation and transformation behind BEAST

Man has always sought the truth. The alchemists' common goal was to discover the method of transmutation of lead into gold (philosopher's stone), medicine for all diseases (panacea) and the elixir of immortality. Alchemy can be considered the direct ancestor of modern science. Those who studied alchemy were characterized by courage and curiosity. Which they often overpaid with their lives. Today we know that the old symbols reflected true science hidden under the mask of mystery and secret. Zuzanna Zakrzewska, illustrator of the BEAST books, will help us explore the secrets of alchemical allegories in the game.
