TEUFELSKUNST Occult Art Shop and Blog

New in Store: Aconite Roots, Gallow's Oak, Mandrake, Poison Hemlock, Poppy Seeds + Announcing Next Artist Interview

We received in the mail new precious working and crafting materials, amongst which was a huge gift from an English sorcerer: in the center of the package a Giant Poison Hemlock root, about 40 cm, perfect for a central altar piece in the work with the Typhonian Currents or in Rites of the Dark Goddess in Her Strangler-Aspects and Her Succubi.

“The Hemlock is certainly an ophidian sukkubi: coiling around the senses and fogging all reason: a deadly naiad who entices you and whose kiss tightens itself around you to constrict your breath and steal your life away. A beautiful and terrible Queen.”

To the initiated Poison Hemlock is on the other hand also a strong ally in the battle against all archonic suppression. The above roots are availabe for purchase. Prices on demand.

*

Also available are recently harvested roots of Aconite. The roots are 7-13 cm in length, straight, curled and some forked, for making talismans or usage in powders and potions. Price varies from 5-15 €, depending on root size and shape.

*

Gallow’s Oak for crafting: fine pieces of mossy-grown Gallow’s Oak wood to be crafted into  talismans. The wood is part of a trade with an English practitioner. More to be revealed about this later…

  

Further fresh Male Fern Root, Mandrake Talismans, Seeds of Poison Hemlock, Mandrake and Poppy and some anorganic ingredients such as Sulfur and Iron Oxide can now also be bought from us.

ARTIST INTERVIEW: SAMUEL ARAYA

We are looking forward to our first artist interview with illustrator and designer Samuel Araya. In the interview we will talk about his work and the inspirations behind his dark imagery. We will also have a closer look at three of his paintings, investigate their meaning and receive insights into the process of making them.

TALISMANS II

bellicum
Latin “war-signal”, “war-trumpet”,
also a name of the Prunus spinosa (Blackthorn) tree

fasces
from the Latin word fascis,
meaning “bundle”

Fasces are a bundle of wooden sticks with an axe blade emerging from the center, which is an image that traditionally symbolizes summary power and jurisdiction, and/or “strength through unity”.

The idea behind the fasces has inspired us again in the creation of this second batch of handmade Talismans. The Talismans are manufactured in a manner similar to the first five Talismans offered here. The difference to the first series is in their form: whilst the first were atavistic representations of the ghost-like emanations of our craft the new talismans are more human in shape. Both Talismans serve at the same time as Mascots of our Teufelskunst and are only given into the hands of experienced practitioners.

The filling consists again of various hot peppers and herbs (partly poisonous) as well as loadstone powder. The skulls are carved again from the Blackthorn’s wood, each holding a pair of dark-red garnets in their eye-sockets. The talismans are accompanied by seven anointed Blackthorn spines bound together with cleansed red and black thread, forming Bellicum Fasces to be used in attack and defense spellwork. With each talisman comes also a cleansed vial to insert a hand-written spell or pact, one anointed onyx sphere and incense.

The talismans have been manufactured entirely by hand. They carry fluid links to the totemic soul of Crow, Scorpion and Snake, and powdered links to the plant souls of Aconite, Belladonna, Black Nightshade, Henbane, Mandrake, Mugwort, Thorn Apple and Wormwood, mixed with the tears of Myrrh and the wood of the Bellicum tree. Long Pepper, Grains of Paradise and Ghost Chili (Bhut Jolokia) lend their fire to the bodies of the talismans, within their chest beats a small heart-shaped ‘High John the Conqueror root’ and underneath the wooden skull vibrate the powdered remnants of a Human Skullbone.

The incense powder accompanying these talismans consists again of fiery ingredients and should be burnt outdoors only. (The exact formula is given inside the leaflet that comes with the talismans.)

Only seven of these talismans have been crafted and there will not be made more of them.

The price per Talisman set: 53 euro + shipping

*

INCENSE

The fiery incense for Cleansing and Strengthening one’s focus can also be ordered solitary for 7 euro per 50 gram + shipping.
