The birth of Paimon

Always wondered how we make a Pentacle?

The first thing we do is make a connection with the work we are going to make. This is essential because this is the heart of the work. When I sit my shop, I meditate for a couple of minutes and then I start with the first draft.

Paimon

According to The Goetia: The Lesser Key of Solomon the King, Paimon is one of the Kings of Jinnestan, more obedient to Lucifer than other kings are, and has two hundred (one hundred to other authors) legions of demons under his rule. He has a great voice and roars as soon as he comes, speaking in this manner for a while, until the conjurer compels him and then he answers clearly the questions he is asked. When the conjurer invokes this demon he must look towards the northwest (the west to other authors), for there is where he has his house, and when Paimon appears he must be allowed to ask what he wishes and be answered, in order to obtain the same from him.

Paimon teaches all arts, philosophy and sciences, and secret things; he can reveal all mysteries of the Earth, wind and water, what the mind is, and everything the conjurer wants to know, gives good familiars, dignities and confirms them, binds men to the conjurer’s will.

If Paimon is cited alone, some offering or sacrifice must be done, and he will accept it; then two kings called Beball (Bebal or Labal) and Abalam (Abalim) will go to him together with other spirits, often twenty-five legions; but these other spirits do not always come unless the conjurer call upon them.

Draft

I draw the image on the pentacle with a felt-tip pen. I do this by hand while looking at the image in the book. During this proces I go into a deep meditation. I slowly start to engrave the lines with my burin.

It takes time to make beautiful lines that do the image justice.

Engraving

I make sure that all the lines are engraved in the Pentacle. As you can see in the photo.

Finishing

After engraving all the lines and polish the Pentacle. I make sure I thank the spirts for helping me engrave this beautiful piece of Art. After carefully packing this Pentacle will find his way to the new owner.
