Altars/Bomos for the Magically Inclined
The grimoire known as the Ars Almadel (or Almandel) is Part 4 of the Lesser Key of Solomon (also known as the Legemeton, compiled in the 17th century). The Almadel describes the construction of 4 wax tablets, measuring 6 x 6 inches. They are used to evoke solar angels in their appointed times and seasons. This 24 x 24 inch bomos depicts all 4 tables and includes the angels of the directions of space and the zodiac. Learn more about my process and inspiration here. Canvas wraps of the image are $200.

Bomos is the Greek term for an altar platform.

This image at left is an adaption of an alchemical mandala that has long fascinated me and many others. That mandala is the 12th plate of an alchemical picture book called The Azoth of the Philosophers. It depicts the process of alchemy--both as a laboratory exercise and as spiritual pathwork via ascension through the planetary spheres. Learn more about my process here.
