IXI Spirit Mask
for Jack Macbeth
Ostensibly a mask of Melek Taus the Peacock Angel of the Yezidis, this mask draws on elements of IXI, one of which Ways involves considerable mask use and masking. It was made with a nod to primitivism, and draws its isnpiration in part from the masks of Mail.
This mask is a ritual artifact for use within the Mysteries of Otherness which are all enchantments of the Black Circle, and is dedicated to the daimon Conrah (4th Daimon of IXI), though it is a face of the faceless lord Neruomo, Blackman of the Crossroads.
Depicted on its face, the three Keys of Sorcery, sacred to consort Stregiana, converge on eyes that weep eight tears of blood, with each tear being the offering of self slain sorcerer at the termination of each of the 8 Ways of the IXI Arcanum. 24 feathers, in this instance are the 24 ‘I’s of the principal daimon of IXI.
