MARBAS – 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 : In demonology, Marbas or Barbas is a demon described in the Ars Goetia. He is described as the Great President of Hell governing thirty-six legions of demons. He answers truly on hidden or secret things, causes and heals diseases, gives wisdom and knowledge in mechanical arts, and can change men into other shapes. He is depicted as a great lion that, under the conjurer’s request, changes shape into a man. The name Barbas also comes from the Latin “barba”, beard, hellebore (a plant used in witchcraft, especially to invoke demons), and also a male name.
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.
