A statue representing Prudence, from the tomb of Francois II in Nantes Cathedral.  It shows the figure of a young girl - with the face of a wise old man on the back of her head.  Fulcanelli believed the statue symbolised nature in all of her aspects, and also the final stage of the alchemical process, in which opposites combine to produce the perfect, androgynous being.
