Red is the most exciting colour on earth, its sacred meaning rests on its closeness to the colour of blood, thus of life, love and sacrifice. It denotes sin and, conversely, love, which redeems it. In the 20th century red became synonymous with the agitprop of Communist Russia, and with revolution via Che Guevara. The esoteric meaning of red in the ‘Great Work’ of alchemy concludes this talk by Hilary Guise.
