Further iterations of the formal language for the etchings and presentation of the pentacle.



Symbolic presentation of the pentacle – for engraving into the top of the altarpiece.

This is a further development of my previous post. Rather than discuss the geometric and historical relationship of all the elements as the “Psychogeometries” do, this is building symbolism from that relationship.

This is work in progress.


In the footsteps of Iain Sinclair and Alan Moore, this is an updated system of geometric relationships across London. (Books Lud Heat and From Hell, respectively)

Sinclair based his pentangle on the relationships of Nicholas Hawksmoor’s churches (early 18th century), and Cleopatra’s Needle (installed in 1878).

Updated for the 21st Century, a similar pentangle can be formed with the modern composition of Ouroboros and Dividers: the London Eye.

Similar to pre-scientific shamanism, by gathering physical or symbolic elements from these places together and using them ceremonially, the system, and thus the city, can be (symbolically) transformed.
