Curwen Summoning Chest

234 Favourites
A handmade collection of occult related items belonging to the infamous Necromancer Joseph Curwen from the classic H.P. Lovecraft tale, "The Case of Charles Dexter Ward".

A wooden chest devoted to Curwen's study of necromancy and the conjuring of the dreaded deity Yog-Sothoth. Items contained in the chest include:

The Key of Yog-Sothoth- an obelisk shaped black stone inscribed with the Sigil of Yog-Sothoth and encrypted hieroglyphic spells for summoning Yog-Sothoth. Measures 5'' x 2''

The Eye of Yog-Sothoth- a round shaped black stone amulet emblazoned with encrypted instructions said to be necessary in the summoning of Yog-Sothoth. Measures 2 3/4"

Necromancer's Wand- a mummified hanged man's finger in a glass tube affixed with appropriate charms of the dark arts. Measures 6 1/4"

Seven Sons of Yog-Sothoth- 7 glass specimen jars (6 small, 1 large) containing abominations produced from Curwen's arcane rituals. Each jar contains a different creature and has a protective occult circle affixed to the wax sealed lid to keep the still living creatures imprisoned. Small jars measure 3 1/4" x 1 3/4". Large jar measures 4 3/4" x 2 3/4"

Curwen's Cthulhu Idol- A small idol of The Great Old One carved from an unknown black stone. Used by Curwen in attempts to summon Cthulhu. Measures 2 3/4" x 1"

Occult Pages- several loose-leaf documents pertaining to Curwen's dark practices including two Necronomicon pages that give instructions for carrying out the rite for summoning Yog-Sothoth and his spawn.

Very beautiful! A quick question for you: If you were willing to do so, how much would it cost me to commission you to make a copy of the "Necromancer's Wand" bit?
