A Treadwell’s mug complete with a quote by Dion Fortune and our mascot Lady Wisdom on both sides.
In his 1617 alchemical work, Atalanta Fugiens, Maier wrote about Lady Wisdom: ‘This is the all-surpassing Lady Wisdom, who with her right hand penetrates the East, with her left hand the West, and who embraces the whole Earth. He goes on to say that she gives long life and good health, yet she conceals abundant treasures. Her generosity extends to the whole world:‘whoever values wisdom shall be exalted and honoured by Her.’
Dion Fortune was a prominent British occultist and author operating in the first half of the 20th century. Her work and ideas are still amongst the most influential for contemporary magical and esoteric practices.
Both Lady Wisdom and Dion Fortune epitomise our aspirations and embodies ideals we espouse here at Treadwell’s.
