Well, I suppose I’ll present this here due to the fact that there’s currently no section devoted to occult related artistic endeavors. Considering the primary material used for crafting this piece, I nearly posting this within the Necromancy section but felt that it would be better suited here. So, without further ado…
Stage 3 (Final)
1 Human Calcaneus
1 Moonstone Bead
7 Random Animal Teeth
After the piece’s completion, a protective coating of natural shellac provided that rich burnt amber hue and moist appearance. I’m quite pleased with how this turned out, especially after the application of the shellac. It truly brings out every last grotesque detail.
The purpose of this piece, and the additional fetishes I have planned, is to replicate the natural effects of my own essence by imbuing these pieces with primordial darkness. Essentially, they’ll be protective talismans…but in a much more non-traditional sense. Instead of simply providing a protective barrier, the energies of these fetishes will slither towards the source and feast with ravenous intent.
Much like a viral contagion, this will then spread throughout the unwitting victim while using the established tether to transfer the siphoned energy back to the individual in possession of the fetish. In other words, the hostile source who sought harm does the complete opposite: empowering their target at their own expense. I’ve always believed that the best defense is a good offense…and this will be overkill.
All that aside, the materials used in their design provide the perfect vessel for the energies of darkness, not to mention any additional spell weaving thereafter. As an artist, and occultist, I’m overwhelmingly pleased with the final results and look forward to finally imbuing the fetish now that it’s been completed. I couldn’t help but flaunt the physical finalization, so I hope you all enjoy.
