Long before Christianity made its empire-building way into central and Eastern Europe, many of the ancient Pagan peoples practiced what can be construed as shamanism in what are now called Poland, Czechoslovakia, Hungary, Romania and Transylvania, etc.

For example, archaeologists have discovered traces of mysterious rituals performed by (Witcher) Shamans about 9,000 years ago in Poland.

The archaeological site is located near today’s lake Swidwie (West Pomeranian) in North-Western Poland, which has been studied since 2012.

One of the most interesting discoveries is an area of a circle, where scientists discovered mysterious structures.

The main feature of the site turned out to be a trapezoidal building having poles, surrounded by an arch of stones placed at equal distances from each other, which has lain buried down the ages, while numerous wars have been fought above its bones.

There are also ritualistic sharpened yew sticks driven into the surface in the shape of a horizontal figure similar to the Big Dipper, a fragment of the constellation of Ursa Major.

However, many researchers have noted that the shamanic worldview of the pre-Christian European peoples have survived in their colourful myths.

It is upon these ancient myths The Witcher (Polish: Wiedzmin), fantasy series of novels and short stories have derived much of their inspiration, that were written by Polish author Andrzej Sapkowski.

The Witcher books led to the development of a 2007 action role-playing game developed by CD Projekt Red, called The Witcher. The Witcher game was duly followed by The Witcher 2: Assassins of Kings in 2011, and The Witcher 3: Wild Hunt in 2015.

As in the books, upon which the video games are based, the story take place in an alternate medieval fantasy world.

The story follows Geralt of Rivia, one of a few traveling monster hunters who have shamanic powers, known as Witchers.

The Witchers are masters of the martial arts, who can be seen as warrior Shamans. The Witchers also have control over the elements, who use five elemental hand-signs to do so, which are similar to Mudras used in the meditation practice of Yoga.

In Yoga practice a Mudra means ‘sign,’ seal, gesture, or mark. Yoga Mudras are symbolic meditation gestures often practiced with the hands and fingers.

They facilitate the flow of energy within the dream (subtle) body, when utilised when (sexagram/sixth-sense) lucid dreaming.

The ‘meditation tool of a Witcher video game’ has a system of moral choices, which are part of its adult story-line.

It has been noted for its time-delayed consequences and lack of black-and-white morality.

There are also numerous references to the works of the author H.P. Lovecraft in the highly successful Witcher video games.

For example, one of the enemies Geralt fights against in the first game is Dagon, as described by Lovecraft. In the Wild Hunt, Geralt can also get hold of the Necronomicon.

The comic page is in part inspired by the Rarebit Fiend and Little Nemo In Slumberland comics by the American cartoonist Winsor McCay.

The comic page was initially a rough sketch of an idea, I was going to trace onto Bristol board, using a handy tool of a light-box, and then ink in.

However, I finally decided that the sketch its self, would be the finished Art, since tracing sketches often lose much of their dynamism in the process.

I also decided not to digitally erase the guide lines, should there be any of an experiment.

However, I have also done other versions, which have been cleaned up, along with making the pen-work darker, etc. One of which will be the final Artwork.

The comic strip is a single page non-narrative story, which will be followed by other pages of similarity.

The entire comic page was done in pen on A4 size paper. Another example of an enlarged comic strip panel can be found below.

BARBARELLA STAR CRASH PEN SKETCH

Posted in Alien, Art, Comics, Film, Science Fiction, Succubus, Surrealism with tags , , , , , , , , , , , , , , , on September 17, 2019 by FAUSTUS CROW

The above A4 pen sketch, which can be seen in full on Patreon, is a generic science fiction depiction of Barbarella who is a comic book heroine created by the Artist, Jean-Claude Forest.

His two-dimensional comic book heroine was later made manifest in the three-dimensional form of the actress, Jane Fonda in the 1968 science fiction film, entitled, Barbarella, directed by Roger Vadim.

As for the name, Barbarella, it is a variant of Barbara, which is of Latin origin. The meaning of Barbara means, ‘foreign (Alien) woman.’

The adjective was originally applied to anyone who did not speak Greek; it has the same root as, ‘barbarian.’

In Roman Catholic custom, Saint Barbara is conjured as a Queen Bee spiritual protector against fire and lightning.

She is also a patron saint of fortifications and an Art Muse of architects as well as stonemasons, one can otherwise term as being Freemasons, who as worker Bees frequent Beehive lodges. If you are interested in seeing the sketch in full, Please Click Here.

If you are interested in the Al Azif Necronomicon, part 3, which is being serialised as a fully illustrated underground comic book, it can be found on my Patreon page, Please Click Here.

Part three of the Al Azif Necronomicon covers an alternate version of H.P. Lovecraft’s short story, ‘Pickman’s Model.’

The story revolves around a Bostonian Artist named Richard Upton Pickman, which was written in September 1926.

‘Pickman’s Model’ was first published in the October 1927 issue of Weird Tales.

The story was later adapted for television in a 1971 episode of the Night Gallery anthology series.

The first part of the Al Azif Necronomicon is based upon H.P. Lovecraft’s own description and history about Abdul Alhazred’s book, which I have taken into the Twilight Zone.

As for Lovecraft’s character, Randolph Carter, I have based him upon the ‘Altered States’ of consciousness researchers, Dr John C. Lilly and Terrence McKenna.

The first part of the Al Azif Necronomicon is based upon H.P. Lovecraft’s own description and history about Abdul Alhazred’s book, which I have taken into the Twilight Zone.

As for Lovecraft’s character, Randolph Carter, I have based him upon the ‘Altered States’ of consciousness researchers, Dr John C. Lilly and Terrence McKenna.

Lovecraft’s surrealist creation of the Al Azif Necronomicon transmuted the dualism of a religious fixation upon a war in Heaven and Hell into the realms of science fiction.

Ancient alien entities are in perpetual conflict with one another, whose shadowy existence has engendered bored humans to engage themselves in exotic cargo-cult religions.

Interestingly, you find the same transmutation of religious symbolism into the domains of science fiction when looking into the UFO mystique, where Angels and Demons have been transformed into Aliens, whether they be hovering around amidst the cosmos, or hiding away in underground bases.

Lovecraft described Al Ahazred’s book to be a very dangerous tome, because it revealed the archetypal theme of a cosmic war fought by deities as being, in actuality, a conflict between monstrously ancient alien races, who far predate humanity and even predating the formation of the solar system.

However, Lovecraft’s subject matter would not be too Earth shattering of a revelation to a cultist whom worships deities, who is then told that his/her deities are actually aliens, whose technology is indivisible from magic. The cultist would just shrug his/her shoulders and make the symbolic transition quite easily.

In other words, Lovecraft’s Al Azif Necronomicon wouldn’t be considered as being dangerous at all, nor would it be banned, since it validates the established religious orientation from a scientific perspective.

There are numerous historical examples of grimoires, which are in archetypal accord with the religious paradigm, even when they veer into what can be considered as being the arena of proto-science fiction, such as, for example, Dr John Dee’s Enochian system.

I am more concerned about what has actually been banned, and totally castigated out of the symbolic equation.

Also, I am not saying another order of alien intelligence does not exist, far from it, since what has been cut out of the equation is a particular expression of the ‘symbolic interface,’ which facilitates communication with other forms of intelligence via the informational realms of electron dreams.

Hence, a certain form of the ‘symbolic interface’ is considered as being dangerous. Wherefore, it has been banned!
