still fascinated by the Ripley Scroll
have been researching 
the Philosopher's Stone 
and the Philosopher's Egg
had to go back and take a better look at the scroll
up for auction
so went to the Christie's website
to read more about it
(click here)
this portion of the scroll shows
the flask, aka
the Philosopher's Egg
Kay Sutton, Director of Medieval and Renaissance Manuscripts
at Christie's London
says of the scroll,
‘The manuscripts we see are usually much more conventional.
This is wonderfully, colourfully, exotically, wacky.’
