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

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

The New Year

… started with an eclipse, one of four that 2011 will see, and I picked up practice again, working esoterically for the largest part.

Some of the things currently manifesting are a row of ensouled paintings connected to plant spirits. At the same time I am researching and composing articles on all the herbs I am dealing with. That means in practice also, that each herb and seed bag offered here comes from plants that I have grown by myself or that have been gathered in small amounts from surrounding nature. To test myself I have begun selling seeds privately on eBay and all the positive feedback on the quality of seeds and growing success encourages me to pursue my goal of expanding the Teufelkunst garden…

Artistically I am heading in a new phase as well, specializing in the manufacture of figurines and fetishes as well as paintings. But good things take time and all that is offered here is 100% unique. This means in other words no piece of art you find on this site is to be found anywhere else. And if you decide to purchase from me you get exactly what you see and nothing else. The price for this is patience and sometimes long waiting times. E.g. a custom skull or statue might take up to 6 months to be completed. So it is up to you, the customer, to know what you want and whether you are able to wait that long. On the other hand sometimes a unique piece of art might be just worth the wait. I am of course also striving to develop in my craft and methodology in hopes to become faster.

Lastly I may sporadically feature trusted esoteric artists and Left-Hand Path practitioners. I am also always interested in networking with experienced craftsmen and sellers.

One more thing, you can reach me now also on tumblr and facebook

Happy New Year!
