Samhain Art

This year for Halloween I decided to sculpt and paint a mask to wear as a stylized form of Melek Ta’us, the Peacock Angel of Middle Eastern myth.

Dressed in black leather, a purple shirt and a peacock feather, I completed this homage to the Blue God and went out dancing, thus connecting what are usually two very different experiences for me… a secular Halloween, and a religious Samhain. Doing my best to embody the qualities of my favorite Deity, I had the good fortune to run into a hot little satyr with whom I shared the dance floor for most of the evening. Today, still basking in the glow of the previous night, I created the following art piece:

  2. Will you be my psychopomp?
    *cheering raucously and rapturously*
    Damn fine constructive subversion your hieros gamos of Halloween and Samhain. Both heart- and loins-warming. No wonder Pan blessed you so graciously in that secular dance temple last night!
    Will you be my psychopomp?
    A hundred thousand blessings on your heads both great and small, .
