BARBATOS – Handmade print from a wooden matrix, with frame, around 25cm per 20cm.
Many years ago, a very famous engraver named Albrecht Durer made several woodcut on the Christ’s Passion. There is 37 woodcuts in this collection.
You can see my collection of demons like the opposite of Durers one. At the end, there will be 72 prints of the 72 demons who come from the old book of demonology, the lesser key of the king salomon, aka the Lemegeton.
Each demon is a free interpretation of the description that I found on Wikipedia (a very accurate source of knowledge innit ?). Each print is sold with a frame and is around 25 cm per 22 cm including the frame. There is no glass on it, for the same reason there is no glass in a front of a painting : it “flats” everything and the print losts its interest.
Here is the wikipedia description of the demon : Barbatos is the 8th spirit named among the list of 72 demons in The Lesser Key of Solomon. According to grimoire tradition, he holds the rank of Duke, and (like the demon Buer) may appear when the sun is in the sign of Sagittarius. When summoned, he appears “with four noble kings and their companions in great troops”. Barbatos grants the ability to understand the spoken language of animals, such as the singing of birds and the barking of dogs. He reveals hidden treasures that have been concealed by the enchantment of magicians, gives knowledge of past and future events, and reconciles disputes between friends and those who hold power. Barbatos has 30 legions of spirits under his command, and once belonged to the angelic order of Virtues.
Here is some information about the process for the handcraft geeks <3
I draw them and after that I carve them on a pear woodplank. The carving process is quite long, around 20 hours for each plank. The inking and printing are made by hand. With a rubber roll, I apply an oil ink, very thick, and I press it on my proofpress. The frame is also handmade, I cut at the good size some scandinavian pinwood, and I tint them before assembling the 4 sticks together.
The final process is to bring everyting in one piece ! I cut the back of the frame and I put it behind the print with some flexible lamels.
I hope that the print will fit dreadfully in you interior and bring a kind of occult touch.
