Sacred Heart, an oil and egg-tempera painting by contemporary esoteric artist Benjamin Vierling, appears on the dust jacket of the standard edition of our newest title Veneficium: Magic, Witchcraft, and the Poison Path. The image features the emergence of Belladonna, Henbane and Datura —three plants allied to the Devil and comprising a part of the so-called ‘Witches’ Garden’— from a human heart. The image draws on both the Vanitas traditions and botanical realism to present a living iconoclasm of poison. For more information about Benjamin and his work, please see the interview with Benjamin here.
In cooperation with the artist, Three Hands Press is pleased to offer Sacred Heart as a high-quality limited edition print. Produced via 6-colour offset lithography and printed on archival coated stock, the 16” x 20” print is strictly limited to 250 copies, hand-signed and numbered by the Artist.
