Michael Locascio’s Dellamorte & Co, in Fairlawn, New Jersey, has a bunch of interesting things to check out, but the first thing that caught my eye were these resin Anatomical Heart Vases in pewter and red finishes.
Christian Day’s HEX: Old World Witchery has some interesting statues based on Goetic spirits and more from the grimoires on offer, including statues of Buer, Behemoth, Baphomet and even some that don’t begin with the letter B.
Buer is a spirit that appears in the 16th century grimoire Pseudomonarchia Daemonum and its derivatives, where he is described as a Great President of Hell, having fifty legions of demons under his command. He appears when the Sun is in Sagittarius. Buer teaches natural and moral philosophy, logic, and the properties of all herbs and plants. He also heals all diseases, especially of men, and gives good familiars. According to some authors, he teaches Medicine and has the head of a lion and five goat legs surrounding his body to walk in every direction. In Grim Grimoire, Buer is summoned using the alchemy rune. Also, he discourages drunkenness.This sculpture is made of resin with a faux bronze finish. It stands approximately 4.25″ tall by 4.25″ across.
According to legend, the Behemoth was the largest animal that lived on land. Jewish tradition tells us that it was fashioned from clay on the sixth day of creation. However, the book of Job records that the Behemoth is the first of God’s works. In the Muslim tradition, Behemoth equates with the monstrous Bahamut, the vast monster that supports the earth in the cosmos. Demonically, as the name suggests, he was a huge soldier of Satan, usually depicted as an elephant with a big round belly, waddling on two feet. He was the infernal watchman, and also presided over the gluttonous banquets and feasts. It is said that he also enjoyed a certain renown for his voice, being regarded as Hell’s official demonic singer.This sculpture is made of resin with a faux bronze finish. It stands approximately 3 1/2 inches tall by 2 1/2 inches wide.
