Durer: The Sea Monster and the Beast (1497)

“And there was another sign in heaven: and behold a great red dragon, having seven heads, and ten horns: and on his head seven diadems.” – Apocalypse 12:3
“All inhabitants of the earth will worship the beast” – (13:8)
 “Then I saw another beast which rose out of the earth; it had two horns like a lamb and it spoke like a dragon” (13:11)

Ghost – It’s Happening!!!!

Ghost announced their new tour with Volbeat and Twin Temple. I cannot put into words the Satanic ecstasy that a Ghost concert provides. Such moving music–it pales in comparison to the sound of the albums. I have been to a Ghost ritual before and I consider it one of the high points of my entire life. Twin Temple will also be present! I am so so so so excited.

Did my friends and I just get very good seats? Yes.

Do we live on the complete opposite corner of the country where this is happening? Yes

Does this mean things can return to normal baseline reality? I sure fucking hope so.

Angelic Bodies of Roberto Ferri

NeoBaroque master Roberto Ferri, graduate of the Academy of Fine Arts, Rome. These three examples present Baroque and Classical ideals of the male figure in exaggerated musculature which is dramatically contoured in the chiaroscuro.

Lucifer, 2013. The physical proportions and posing give the impression of La génie du mal
Fallen Angel, 2011.
Cupid Weeps At The Tomb Of Psyche, 2013

Phallic Satyrs, Psykter of Cerveteri, Century V BCE

490-500 BCE: This Attic red-figure psykter (wine cooling vessel) from the necropolis of Cerveteri depicts bearded satyrs in revelry. A satyr falls backwards and balances a cantharos (drinking cup) upon his erect penis. Other satyrs around him pour wine into the cantharos. Other figure groups in the artefact depict other acrobatic satyrs in various states of drunkenness.

It boggles my mind to think that this piece of pornographic pottery is as old as Buddhism.

In red-figure, as the artist would add series of drafts and outlines, certain features like fingers, noses and penises would become long and skinny

Currently located at the British Museum.

55th Anniversary of the Church of Satan

On this day in 1966, Walpurgisnacht, Anton LaVey formally founded the Church of Satan. Today his religion has spread around the world as a hidden cabal of movers, shakers, artists, and accomplished beings. Satanism naturally attracts artists and creatives. From time to time, their talents are curated and merged such as during the Devil’s Reign series of art installations. You can find some amazing artwork in the now four volumes of The Devil’s Reign from Howl Books. This year for the 55th anniversary of the founding of the CoS, a 3D virtual gallery featuring highlights from previous installations can now be enjoyed at BlackFlowers.

Baphomet Rising – A Stained Glass Original

This one of a kind stained glass framed window, “Baphomet Rising” was designed and created by me under my studio Faustus Glass, over the course of 8 months of the pandemic. Over 240 individually hand cut pieces of exquisite Italian glass are joined together in this piece to the glory of the Horned One himself.

This dynamic and vibrant framed work of art features beautiful crystal clear bevels, deep red jewels, and a combination of decadent cathedral and opaque glass fashioned in the Tiffany technique–a gorgeous and lasting statement for the serious collector.

Available for sale in the lower 48 states, for the price of $666.
Update: SOLD. Congrats to the new owner.
