In the outer circle is a serpent, the Egyptian god Typhon, the god of evil, descending from the left side. The central wheel contains the alchemical symbols of mercury, sulfur, water and salt, the basic components of life and the four elements, as well as representing the formative power either. On the right side stands Anubis, the Egyptian god of the dead who welcomes souls into the underworld. And at the top of the wheel is the sphinx, which represents knowledge and strength.
