The Soccer Game

 






The Title is perhaps a misnomer, and might better be something like “Celestial Nine-pins”, because it is about planets and stars an old star maps being knocked around the sky by gigantic forces once called “The Gods”. This is simply my fantasy of an alchemical romance. Many of woodcuts (apart from 18th century star maps) are taken from “The Mirror of Magic” and show alchemists allegorically searching for the universal Elixir. The sound is from an “open tape” of a bowling alley, and brings a kind of Rip Van Winkle touch to the game.
