the four classical alchemical elements

Here are some examples of the four classical elements that were involved with ancient philosophy in relation to how the world was formed. They were also used in what is now known as alchemical science in ancient history.

I dropped in a very modern take on it from Gilbert Swimberghe that hangs in Brussels airport as an example of how it has been applied to contemporary design as I intend to use it.
