Hand- Coloured and Embellished Card. An Original Talismanic Icon. Andrew Chumbly has taken a copy of one of his black & white illustrations, hand coloured it, singed the edges and mounted it onto an 8 x 10 inch grey card. The artist has then embellished the card with wavy tridents and inscribed it with the Sabbatic Sorcerer's cry "Bilo Bilo...." The image appears to be a self-portrait as a threefold tantric deity with breasts, phalli and skulls, sword and crooked trident. The paper appears to be slightly cockled, it was likely consecrated with fire and water.
An amazing piece. Near Fine. Item #311729
