Consulting The Oracle of Delphi


While the tripod and its base differ from the description of several authors, an attempt has been made to follow as closely as possible the symbolism concealed within the allegory of the oracle. The three legs symbolize the periods of time controlled by Apollo, the past, the present, and the future. So the Delphic Oracle, as the spiritual nature of man, is suspended over the abyss of oblivion by three golden threads of Divine power.11 x 17 inches
