Artwork Description

This is the CENTER panel of a triptych. The full title of this work is:

"The Summoning, Manifestation, and Containment of the Visage of Zvilpogghua, Feaster from the Stars"

The triptych measures 60 inches wide and is just over 2 feet in height.

From the Book of Eibon:
"Zvilpogghua, as firstborn of the spawn of dreaded Tsathoggua, begotten by the Black Thing upon a female entity named Shathak on far and frozen Yaksh the seventh world, was a demonic personage of the most primordial lineage, and very greatly to be feared."

Art and Magick are related in Process. Symbolically then, this triptych is about Process.

What's happening in these 3 pieces is that Zvilpogghua, a demon--is being:

SUMMONED (panel 1)

MANIFESTED (panel 2) and being brought into the actual "real" world
--this is why the middle is the most clear because the demon is in it's total form at this stage and then finally

CONTAINED ( panel 3) which is what we see here, just prior ot banishment which I don't depict because it would basically be an empty room.

The skirts of light are not jars of glass but cones containing the demon.
If you look closely you can see that the demon is always in a state of flux (change) because it is not OF this world so staying in one form even when it is most solid (center "Manifestation" panel) is a tricky business.

Apparently too this demon had a fondness for ripping apart those foolish enough to summon it.

Art at its best.
