The Voynich Manuscript/Nymphs
From Wikibooks, open books for an open world
Just a note, nothing final; a few comments.
- Sometimes the nymphs seem to me as spirits that operate on various levels of reality. In a few images they seem to be creating weather: rain, wind, snow, rainbows.
- A shot in the dark: If the author was a madman, maybe he saw his mother naked in the bath once, and her image populated his visions.
- A strange detail that hasn't been noted in commentary that I've read on the VMs: many of the nymphs hold their arms behind their bodies in positions that would be uncomfortable or impossible if they were human.
- When they're not bathing in tubs of green liquid, some of the nymphs stand in vehicles that look like hovering Segways.
