2009. Limited Edition. A glass bottle, approximately in the shape of a crystal skull, heavily decorated with sigils and symbols in black paint by Australian-born artist and occultist Barry William Hale (author and artist of "Legion 49" etc.) Accompanied by a SIGNED limitation statement indicating that it is No. 1 of only 7 bottles thus produced, each with unique design (apparently one of these was subsequently accidentally broken by the owner, so there are now only six!). The statement reads: "The Bottles of Beelzebub. The Sigillick Conjuration of Beelzebub is incorporated into the walls of Seven unique Talismanic Bottles sporting a variegated panalopy of magical signs and symbols sacred to the Lord of the Flies. They may be used exclusively for diabolic libations unto the Lord of Calamity in Exorcistci Ecstasis, Rites and Rituals, at Crossroads and Conjurations, or as an apparatus of Capture to call, coerce and constrain demons of legion under the dominion of the Prince of Pride 'for the Lord goeth where his image is.' With appropriate sacraments and 'signa magica' tha Servitors drawn from LEGION 49, or the spirits of VERUM for examle, are deposited into the vessel, sealed and bound, to become a phantastic formidable fetish for diverse purposes and Pacts. The Bottle is number: I of 7 [signed and sigilized] Barry W. Hale." The statement in printed on the recto of a single sheet of 8 1/4 x 5 7/8 inch paper, loosely inserted in a green hand-made paper envelope. The seven "Bottles of Beelzebub" were created by Hale in 2009, the same year that he released his artistic grimoire "Legion 49", which focuses on Beelzebub and his 49 servitors as who are intimately connected to this artwork. The bottle was designed for the Canada-based Crystal Head Vodka company by renowned US artist John Alexander in homage to the thirteen Crystal skulls embued with mystical powers that legend suggests were held by native tribes in the Americas. The bottle - which is empty - originally contained 750ml of vodka. Please note the bottle is clear glass, although it does not appear this way in the accompanying photographs. The lighter patches in the photographs are just reflection: the bottle and limitation statement are both in near-Fine condition. The bottle is still in the original carton in which it was originally sold. The box has the name of the original person to whom it was sold on the top flap and a little light surface wear, overall VG+ condition. Due to the unusual size of the object additional shipping will be required to that automatically quoted, and if sold outside the US the bottle may attract customs duty. Item #68541
