TEUFELSKUNST Occult Art Shop and Blog

New Web Shop and Changes

The astral procession marches on…

As Teufelskunst keeps growing it has long been my wish to offer my customers an easier way to order my hand-made artworks and incense blends. This wish is finally becoming reality. The new webshop is on the way!

The next weeks will hence mark a transition period, as we are working on setting everything up. On May 20th/21st, the following changes will take place:

  1. This blog will continue to exist and can be reached via the old WordPress URL teufelskunst.wordpress.com
  2. The official site URL www.teufelskunst.com will from then on point to the new website. For the time being there will be shown a temporary “New website coming soon…” notice.
  3. There may be trouble with e-mails – this will be temporary and should be solved within a day. I can still be reached via etsy, instagram and facebook inboxes.
  4. We will be working on the webshop and adding the content as fast as possible. But please bear with me, as my time is split up between crafting, shipping orders and working on the new webpage.

So long, I hope to soon be able to offer you all a better service.

Update: As of June 2017, I no longer sell on Etsy.

Sincerely Yours,

W.

Teufelskunst Rosaries

11|11|2016 - Blessing the Teufelskunst rosaries
11|11|2016 – Blessing the Teufelskunst rosaries

Blessed under the cold moon of the eleventh November night, these hand-made rosaries by Soth Arts are a special offer to followers of Teufelskunst. They consist of 58 black and 8 ebony wooden beads and carry one bronze amulet cast by our blacksmith. Please note, each amulet is a little different from the other since small variations are part of the manufacturing process.

The crossroad seal on the amulet is also called “Sigillum Major” or “greater seed sowing seal”, as it is both rooted in the work with plants as well as the rituals performed at different crossroads. A closer look reveals the horned cross or witches’ stang and a non-human eye at its center, underlining the magician’s connection to the wild and untamed world. The rosary and amulet should thus be worn hidden from the mundane eyes of man. It may as such be employed as an empowering tool for the witch as well as a protection amulet against the “evil eye” and the manipulative efforts of other people. It can also be utilized when ritually working with the spirits and guardians of plants and trees.

The rosaries’ inherent numerology reveals the numbers 8, 55, 58 and 66. The following are evocative aspects connected to these numbers, which through prayer and ritual can be linked with the rosaries (gematrical associations taken from Sepher Sephiroth):

8
The entrance, threshold
number of the sephirah Hod and the qlipha Samael

55
Ornament
5 + 5 = 10
10 = number of the sephira Malkuth and the qlipha Nahemoth

58
Secret Wisdom
5 + 8 = 13
13 = number of the descendants of the Qayinite bloodline (sometimes referred to as “mighty dead”)

66
The Mystic number of the Qliphoth and of the Great work
The Lord thy God (is a consuming Fire) [Deut. iv. 24]
6 + 6 = 12
12 = number of the Zodiac and their respective qliphotic adversaries

Within a religious context the rosarium = “crown of roses” or “garland of roses” is the name of a prayer used in the Catholic church and also applies to the string of prayer beads used for counting the component prayers. A similar purpose is found with the so-called witches’ ladder, which consists of threads, hair or feathers tied by a peculiar number of knots into which are whispered spells.

The Teufelskunst rosaries are supplied as a lasting magical talisman to those, who feel a deeper connection with the work presented here. An empowering herbal blend to be used as an incense or for infusing an ablution bath is included with your purchase.

Availability and pricing:

  • beaded rosary with crossroad seal, 80 Euro – Sold out

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.
