Greetings oh Patient Ones!
James Clark is the artist behind the diagrams and images in The Essential Enochian Grimoire. (He worked mainly from sketches made by me and Carrie Mikell.) Just for fun, and to tease the hell outta you guys, he has decided to let a bit of artwork from the book “leak” onto the interwebs every once in a while. And, for the very same reasons, I’ve decided to make a series of blog posts about each image. :)
James’ first release is:
This is the symbol of the Western Kherub in the Golden Dawn traditions (and many traditions that followed). His name is Nesher. He is a form of Scorpius, the fixed sign of Water, though he truly embodies all three signs of the Water triplicity. He is always one of four – the others being angels in the forms of a Lion (Fire triplicity), an Ox (Earth triplicity) and a Man (Air triplicity). You can find these angels in the first chapter of Ezekiel and the fourth chapter of the Revelation of St. John.
You will only see this guy in the second half of the grimoire, dedicated to Golden Dawn-style Enochiania. You won’t see him in the Dee-purist half of the grimoire.
