The Joseph Curwen Occult Treasury by JasonMcKittrick The Joseph Curwen Occult Treasury by JasonMcKittrick
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".



Included in the treasury is a recreation of the oil portrait of Curwen described in the story and a 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.

Wow, what masterful work! You really give a great sense of this fellow and what he was about. (Poor Eliza, she didn't know what she was in for...)

I read the whole thing on ebay and the whole collection is so groovy!
Unfortunatley I'm afraid if I were to take it home, which we did discuss,
our cats wouldn't allow for display. And how pissed would I be to see the
Necromancer's wand half chewed in one of the cat trees?!?!?!?

I hope you get what it's worth, and you've reminded me again how I need to read
some books! lol

Haha! Very cool.

Yeah I came back to Lovecraft in my mid-twenties and the stories took on whole new meanings for me than they had when I was a teenager.

If you haven't read "The Call of Cthulhu", start there!

I'm ALWAYS working or making art, which means I'm ALWAYS at the computer.
Wonder if I can listen to it while I'm doing stuff. Will have to check that out.
I do know I'm writing that title down because I can't just die having not read any
Lovecraft. That's like... not right. Thank you for the suggestion!
