Baphomet doll

This Baphomet doll is by Melita Curphy, Miss Monster, and is unfortunately already sold.

missmonster Baphomet doll

“This is my interpretation of Baphomet, a goat headed idol/deity/demon (depending on who you ask) known through an illustration of a sabbatic goat by Eliphas Levi, seen in the tarot and occult artwork. I’m extremely proud of this piece and I feel that it represents a new level of doll crafting for me.

This Baphomet can be cruel and kind, masculine and feminine and commands respect. But it also really really likes peanut butter sandwiches (optional: sprinkled with goats blood, duh) so please have some ready if you give this beast a home. This doll is also best enjoyed while listening to doom metal.

This doll is hand made using cast urethane from original sculptures, a hand sewn faux fur body and hand dyed/painted wool wings. This doll is not articulated, it is a floppy style doll stuffed with polyfill and weighted to sit for display. The wings and ears can be posed. Glass taxidermy eyes.

This doll’s necklace is made from a pewter Baphomet button from The Black Broom, coral, wood, snake bone, horn and amber beads.

Chaos Ex Machina pendants

Joshua Madara over at hyperRitual has some laser-cut acrylic Chaos Ex Machina Pendants which may be of interest.

“Show your love for Chaos, machines, or Chaotic machines with these laser-cut, black acrylic pendants featuring the symbol of Chaos cut out from the center of a gear. Each pendant measures two inches wide and has a matte finish on one side (the unfinished side is glossy). Each includes a jump ring to attach the pendant to a necklace chain or cord (not included). Each also comes with the Chaos symbol that has been cut from its center, for you to do with as you like (I keep mine on my altar).” [via]

Alchemia Sulphura earrings

These Alchemia Sulphura – Black Occult Stud Earrings are from Dark Witch Creations.

“Hand made and hand painted polymer clay earrings. Set on hypo-allergenic ear studs, and clear glazed to protect the clay and design. They are about the size of a dime, and are very light weight.

Featured is the alchemical symbol for sulfur, one of the three primes. There are several interpretations of the symbol, but one of my personal favourites, and the one that has inspired these earrings is the connection to Satan and devil worship. These earrings are for sisters or brothers that follow a dark path, and are not meant to be worn by those that are not drawn, in some way, to darkness.” [via]

Retail Frustration

Hermetic Library fellow Beth Kimbell posts about the lack of sources and difficulty finding specialty crafted esoteric items of a serious nature on her blog at “Retail Frustration“.

“I have been thinking a lot lately about what I find frustrating in live or web occult retailers. Everywhere I go in this country I see white light, glittery fairy stuff, and not, say, the tools I need to call angels and demons, or walk the planes or carve out a small patch of sacred space.”

“Why can’t I get a statue of a licentious murder goddess carved by hand during the appropriate hours of the day or night on a specific day of the week during the chosen phase of the moon? What makes them think I want a resin cast of my gods when I can have their corresponding stone or wood, hand-crafted with love not mass produced? Why settle for print outs of the enochian tablets?” [via]
