On the day of the Festival of the Ancestors, 1 November 2013, we announce the availability of the Limited Edition
Black Lotus Kult All Saints Amulet.
The design is based on Hagen von Tulien’s stunning “Black Lotus Kult” artwork. Starting Lent Season this year, each of these pendants were personally charged by Archbishop Michael Bertiaux, and given a blessing by him of “Love, Joy and Prosperity” for the new owner. These were then charged in a “Typhonian Tantric” ritual by Black Lotus Kult, and further blessed in a mass of the Ecclesia Gnostica Spiritualis.
Each of these sterling silver amulets are handmade, one of a kind items. The artist pasted the design onto sheet, drilled and cut them out using non-powered tools, and then stamped with hand punches and worked the piece with files and small tools. To finish, the bail is hard-soldered, and then they were given a hand-polish. It is very labor-intensive compared to letting a computer and machine do it, but worth it in the end as each piece is unique and meant to last beyond a lifetime.
Net proceeds from this limited offering will go to fund a future Bertiaux/BLK co-production (tentatively in Seattle 2015) and also provide some help for Seattle Humane and Alley Cat Allies (two animal charities). Each amulet comes with a box, bag, “Prayer Card”, BLK Certificate of Authenticity, and two BLK decals. Purchasers will be credited with a note of thanks in printed or web materials related to the project.
There will only be 11 of these amulets produced and offered to the public.
All of these have been sold or reserved, please send a message to the Black Lotus Kult or BLK Library Facebook page to be placed on a waiting list in the event of an unpurchased reserved piece becomes available.
