Zos- Kia, for Austin Osman Spare

160.00

Austin Osman Spare remains, in my mind, the finest example of the blending of Sorcery and Art. A phenomenal illustrator and painter, a writer of some of the most compelling and original magical texts of the last century-plus. AOS is often considered the 'Grandfather of Chaos Magick' but I think that title does not even begin to do his work justice. As an occult artist, I can think of none better. I first saw a bad photocopy of the Frontispiece of the Book of Pleasure decades ago and fell in love. I had the great pleasure of spending time with some of his original paintings in 1990. This piece is derived from a small part of an illustration from The Book Of Pleasure, on the Death Posture. I modified the eye a bit to reflect the connection of the Kia to a carrion bird, but otherwise strove to keep in line with the original, to the best of my ability.

Pendant measures 1.9″ x .86" x .093" thick (49mm x 22mm x 2.3mm thick), weight is right around 12 grams.
