Introduction
There is a strange trace of a common bipolar symbolism in the applications of the colours Red & Blue, discovered in studies and documented in a series of manuscripts. This religious bipolarity has been named Hermetic for the bifaced idols and the naming conventions by Roman historians (Caesar and Tacitus) and archaeologists, who compared early idols (including the Hermes of Roquepertuse) with Roman bifaced idols of Mercury / Hermes. In fact the bipolar symbolism in religious symbolism however must be considerably older and has been identified in the IndoEuropean deity Dyaeus. Bipolarity has been traced back to the roots of a fertility cult, in which red symbolizes a male and blue a female antipode. The deity itself is symbolized by purple as a joined symbol of male and female antipodes. Bipolarity has been identified in burial rites, in sculptures, in books (the Bible), in language (U and I), in names (Dyaeus, Hermes, IUpiter, respectively Jupiter and IHVH), in heraldry and in artwork (red & blue). The following overview updates the overview to the historical studies and other topics in English language. Some of the manuscript have been published in German and Dutch as well and may be identified in the appendix of all manuscripts. Some of the earlier manuscripts contradict the later texts, as a new insight had been found. The artwork has been created before I discovered the reversal of colour coded symbolism for male respectively female elements. Of course I refused to modify the colours for these oil paintings.
