from Arabic طلسم Tilasm
ultimately from Greek telesma or from the Greek word “telein”
which means “to initiate into the mysteries”
The following talismans are handmade and come with seven oiled and bound Blackthorn spines, one anointed black onyx stone, a pact-vial and fiery incense.
The talisman is hand-sewn and the skull is hand-carved from Blackthorn wood, with eye-sockets holding a pair of dark red garnets. The body of the doll is filled with Myrrh, Blackthorn, Wormwood, Mandrake, Loadstone, Grains of Paradise, Long Pepper and a small amount of extremely hot Ghost-Chili powder. The work with these dolls began during the February New Moon and is being finalized during the March Black Moon. Each doll is unique and with only 9 cm in size they are perfect to carry on oneself as part of different spell-workings and can be put to action within different magical operations. The vial accompanying the doll is new and cleansed. It can be used to place a hand-written spell within or even a blood-signed pact. The doll, once treated as an actual talisman, should be fed twice a month, ideally on the waxing/full moon and the waning/new moon. The offerings can be kept simple.
Note, touching the doll may give you a tangible fiery sensation to the degree as if your hands were burning. Handle with care!
The incense powder accompanying the doll is also of a fiery nature and should be burnt outdoors and not inhaled directly. Use if you are in need of restoring your aura and to banish tenacious obstacles, sickness, depression or other types of severe restraints.

The above talismans are a special offer and are limited in number to only five. Seven additional dolls of the same size are being worked on and they will be offered here in time.
Latin “war-signal”, “war-trumpet”,
also a name of the Prunus spinosa (Blackthorn) tree
from the Latin word fascis,
Fasces are a bundle of wooden sticks with an axe blade emerging from the center, which is an image that traditionally symbolizes summary power and jurisdiction, and/or “strength through unity”.
The idea behind the fasces has inspired us again in the creation of this second batch of handmade Talismans. The Talismans are manufactured in a manner similar to the first five Talismans offered here. The difference to the first series is in their form: whilst the first were atavistic representations of the ghost-like emanations of our craft the new talismans are more human in shape. Both Talismans serve at the same time as Mascots of our Teufelskunst and are only given into the hands of experienced practitioners.
The filling consists again of various hot peppers and herbs (partly poisonous) as well as loadstone powder. The skulls are carved again from the Blackthorn’s wood, each holding a pair of dark-red garnets in their eye-sockets. The talismans are accompanied by seven anointed Blackthorn spines bound together with cleansed red and black thread, forming Bellicum Fasces to be used in attack and defense spellwork. With each talisman comes also a cleansed vial to insert a hand-written spell or pact, one anointed onyx sphere and incense.
The talismans have been manufactured entirely by hand. They carry fluid links to the totemic soul of Crow, Scorpion and Snake, and powdered links to the plant souls of Aconite, Belladonna, Black Nightshade, Henbane, Mandrake, Mugwort, Thorn Apple and Wormwood, mixed with the tears of Myrrh and the wood of the Bellicum tree. Long Pepper, Grains of Paradise and Ghost Chili (Bhut Jolokia) lend their fire to the bodies of the talismans, within their chest beats a small heart-shaped ‘High John the Conqueror root’ and underneath the wooden skull vibrate the powdered remnants of a Human Skullbone.
The incense powder accompanying these talismans consists again of fiery ingredients and should be burnt outdoors only. (The exact formula is given inside the leaflet that comes with the talismans.)
Only seven of these talismans have been crafted and there will not be made more of them.
