The ‘black mandrake’ sigil is among the oldest works in this series and perhaps the best known of my plant inspired sigils. It is an abstract vision of the autumn mandrake (Mandragora autumnalis), which is also referred to as black and female mandrake. In the sigil I summarize folklore and personal experiences related to this powerful magical plant. The sigil was printed in Pillars Journal 1.III (Anathema Publishing, 2015), together with my essay about Regina Amandrakina. The sigil, essay and art are all inspired by the folklore and magic connected to the mandrake root.
You can now purchase an original ensouled paper talisman with the sigil. The motif is drawn with black India ink on coffee stained paper, which has been infused with tinctures of mandrake and wormwood. Each paper sigil is signed and dated on the back.
You receive an original work similar to the one shown here. Please note, that each paper talisman is unique and whilst the motif is the same, can have slight variations and differences in texture.
