The Signs of N.O.X.
The Signs of N.O.X. are these:
Puella (Latin: girl). Stand with feet together, head bowed, left hand shielding the groin, right hand shielding the breast (attitude of the Venus de Medici).
Puer (Latin: boy). Stand with feet together, head erect, right arm in a square (upper arm straight out from the shoulder, forearm straight up) and right thumb between its index and medius (called in Italy "mano in fico"), left fist at groin with thumb extended and pointing forward (attitude of the Gods Khem, Mentu, et al).
Mulier (Latin: woman). Stand with feet wide apart, head thrown back, arms raised so as to suggest a crescent (attitude of Baphomet, Isis in Welcome, the microcosm of Vitruvius).
Vir (Latin: man). Stand with feet together, fists with thumbs thrust out forward held to the temples, the head bowed and pushed out, as if to symbolize the butting of an horned beast (attitude of Pan, Bacchus, etc.).
Isis Rejoicing (also known as Mater Triumphans,
Mother triumphant). Stand with the feet together; the left arm is curved as if supporting a child; the thumb and index finger of the right hand pinch the nipple of the left breast, as if offering it to that child.
