Society of the Horseman's Word

"...And His Master's Name Was Cain" 2015 5"x7"  $25
This is a new pen & ink drawing based on my research into the folklore and magical practices of the Scottish secret society the Horseman's Word. This rural arcane arte allows the initiated to have power over horses and women, and shares much in common with the praxis of the toadmen in traditional witchcraft. After the fashion of freemasonry, a complex series of ritualized swearing of oaths and pacts allowed the initiate into the inner mysteries  of the society. To the rural farmer, having power over animals gave a huge advantage to their relationship with the land and the often harsh agricultural lifestyle.
