Azazel, Angel of Sacrifices by PeteMohrbacher Azazel, Angel of Sacrifices by PeteMohrbacher

Tonight we pour the water from our bowls,
the warmth from our hearths,
and the breath from our flock.

We bring an end to these necessities,
not for their destruction,
but in their honor.

For in their absence,
we can truly see their glory.

I tried to find a picture of Azazel with yellow eyes, but alas I could not.  I still like it though.

I thought the records were quite clear that Azazeal was the angel who taught man smelting of metals to make blades and armor - of rare precious metals - and taught women to apply kohl and makeup to beautify themselves.

That though Samyaza took the blame it was Azazeal who therefore taught destructive technology to man, likely knowing well that man's sin had not yet been purged by millennia in the wilderness.  Perhaps he wanted to provoke man to destroy himself to end the "Eden Experiment".  There's motive for it too; beings created in the first instants of creation, archangels who's wings could beat through whole universes being confined to a tiny speck in a vast supercosmic ocean for a long and indeterminate time over creatures that many of them held in contempt.

He was bound more severely than the others - now he's reduced to reaching out to mess with people who play with Ouija boards - google stuff with the boards and an entity called "Zazaz"...It's getting viral now, but there seems to have been a number of independent issues with people claiming problems with the boards and such an entity - even back to pre-internet days.


Might be interesting to see Lucifiel - or the Morningstar - the Devil but before he fell - afire with pride, the guardian of the morning, the protector of the throne (replaced by Michael) who loved God but hated Mankind - who possibly prompted the Great Flood hoping to wipe out mankind but then fell after man repopulated after the flood and the world after was soon almost as wicked as the one before - but God refused to destroy all mankind and give him input in a replacement.


Hope my comments aren't seen as trollish - incredible art.

I really like the term "Eden Experiment" and all the things that it could imply :) ! Is it from you ?

More from reading tons of ancient/hidden history stuff - I'd cite Zecharia Sitchin as the prime inspiration for that term. 


Writing my own fictions (more a pulp style universe) but the "Sword and Sorcery" character (think Conan except not Conan) is set in the Antediluvian era so did a lot of research on this - found these incredible illustrations that are far better than anything I could do.  I'm envisioning an ancient - now forgotten era - tens of thousands of years old - essentially 100,000 years to 1 million years from when man was created and quickly fell, then the time the watchers grew bored/defiant just watching him struggle in the wilderness and gave man technology, civilization - but they were wrong and their gifts only made things worse as man was still with sin - leading to a war between giants (Nephilim) and their parents - Book of Enoch/Titanomachy...  This then led to a degrading period of the ancient empires and man's increasing wickedness, before the Deluge.


Tempted to ask (or rather Comission) him to do "Afire-With-Love" a character of mine for those stories, but probably be too expensive (worth it) and confuse people since he's doing real (well real legendary at least) characters...  Put a link to some sketches.

Pretty good :) ! So in the muslim mythology, do efreets and djinns coexist with angels ? Are they similar to the concept of demons in other abrahamic faiths ?

I love it. Actually Azazel is the angel of basically the middle-east, or like the desert. According the the jewish bible. They had to send him the scapegoat who carried the sins of Israel. Still, this is amazing.

This may sound weird, but I like how you included the goat in the picture. Like it's the angel's scapegoat or something.

Also, it could be a reference to how Louis Breton portrayed him (as a demon next to a goat) in Collin de Plancy's Infernal Dictionary !

That is stunning and beautiful. Your use of colour adds to the feel and air about your piece that makes it demand ones attention. I also enjoy the way you have presented the concept and especially of sacrifice it's not vulgar or graphic but you still get the intensity and gravity of what it means. I thank you for taking the time to create and share, I greatly appreciate it.
