Signed Limited edition photograph, “Calling the Treasure Spirits.” Limited to only 15 Prints.
This 12″ x 12″ photograph features the magic circle from the 1843 imprint of the Saint Christopher Prayer which by the turn of the 18th century was one of the most sought after grimoires.
It consists of a long-winded prayer for compelling the spirits and demons that guard treasure. In southern-Germany during the mid-18th century, Protestant and Catholic theologians alike condemned its use. In 1773, the ring leader of group of treasure hunters was punished by having to kneel in the marketplace with his magical manuscripts. Amongst them was the Saint Christopher Prayer. (Owen Davis)
