Enochian Tools Draft Complete

I finished the first set of Enochian tools. Pics are below. I'll be making more as time goes by, more authentic, but I'm kinda eager to get started.

  4. Nice. Is the large Sigillum resting on the Ensigns your own innovation? That makes for some interesting symbolism.

    I like seeing Enochian magicians actually put the tools together and work with them. I've run into too many folks over the years who say they don't need the equipment and then are surprised when their results don't measure up, even though they deliberately didn't follow the instructions.

  5. Ananael,

    I uhm, ahem, thought that was how it was supposed to go. :-D

  6. According to Dee's diaries the Holy Table is 3 feet square and the Sigillum is 9 inches in diameter, which means that the size ratio you have shown here doesn't match. Is your Sigillum bigger or is your Table smaller?

    If you blow the diagram in Causaubon up to 3 feet and place a 9-inch Sigillum in the center, the Sigillum sits inside the circle formed by the Ensigns. Also, after working with Ensigns made from tin, Dee was later told to just paint the figures onto the Table, which to me implies that they weren't supporting the Sigillum.

    That being said, I like the symbolism of your design nonetheless.

  7. Thanks, the real issue was that I already had a 12"X12" piece of wood handy. :D It saves on space. The SDA is about 8", maybe 8.5". The pie-pan I used was slanted a bit.

  8. Well, I do know how that goes. Before I put together my full-sized Table and Sigillum I used a smaller set that I built out of materials that I already had. I was able to get some pretty decent results using it, so the exact size is not an absolute requirement.
