Opus magnum or Great Work is an alchemical term for the process of creating the so-called philosopher's stone, attributed to ancient chemical processes that would allow the transformation of lead into gold. Alchemy as a proto-science, also sought to cure all diseases and discover the source of eternal youth. In its essence, Alchemy would be a symbolic philosophical school that takes the resource of allegory to establish its objectives. Therefore, to transform lead into gold means to evolve the human being from its first stage, natural, to another spiritually superior through the teachings left by Masters or Gods superior in the past.
In a hermetic way, the alchemical treatises give instructions to obtain the greatest wisdom that a human being can achieve, being the spiritual understanding among human beings some of its most important points for the final transmutation.
My visual work tries to show these ancient postulates through an allegorical and metaphorical treatment, using animation as a method of self-interpretation.

"At the beginning we unite, then we corrupt, we dissolve what has been corrupted, we purify what has been dissolved, we gather what has been purified and we solidify it. In this way man and woman become one. "

(brief treatise on the Philosopher's Stone, 1778)

(🇪🇸 spanish) Opus magnum o Gran Obra es un término alquímico para el proceso de creación de la llamada piedra filosofal, atribuida a antiguos procesos químicos que permitirían la transformación del plomo en oro. La alquimia como proto-ciencia, también buscó curar todas las enfermedades y descubrir la fuente de la eterna juventud. En su esencia, la Alquimia sería una escuela filosófica simbólica que toma el recurso de la alegoría para establecer sus objetivos. Por lo tanto, transformar el plomo en oro significa evolucionar al ser humano desde su primera etapa, natural, a otro espiritualmente superior a través de las enseñanzas que nos dejaron Maestros o Dioses superiores en el pasado.
De manera hermética, los tratados alquímicos dan instrucciones para obtener la mayor sabiduría que un ser humano puede alcanzar, siendo la comprensión espiritual entre los seres humanos algunos de sus puntos más importantes para la transmutación final.
Mi trabajo visual intenta mostrar estos postulados antiguos mediante un tratamiento alegórico y metafórico, utilizando la animación como un método de auto interpretacion.

“Al principio unimos, después corrompemos, disolvemos lo que ha sido corrompido, purificamos lo que ha sido disuelto, reunimos lo que ha sido purificado y lo solidificamos. De esta forma el hombre y la mujer devienen en uno.”

(breve tratado de la Piedra Filosofal, 1778)

The Ancient City Wall of Datong has beared significant strategic importance since ancient times, particularly since the Ming Dynasty (1368-1644). Therefore, countries at that time took the city defense construction very seriously. The city's military history specifically includes a history of city defense.  The city wall was built as a clay building by the Northern Wei state (386-534) during the Southern and Northern Dynasties(420-589). Its layout has changed during four dynasties of Tang, Liao, Jin, Yuan, and finally settled to what it is seen today in the Ming Dynasty. During the fifth year of Hongwu (1368-1398), General Xu Da enlarged the clay wall, covering an area of 2.63 square kilometers. It is tall and majestic, solid and steep. The base was made from stone strips, slates and blue bricks. Materials were classified by size, which were selected and used according to different parts.
