This is a tribute to the seeker, Aleister Crowley.

Penned in pastels by Hettie Rowley, the portrait is overwritten by an excerpt from his great poem, 'Hymn to Pan'.

I really think the old bastard would like this...


Soft walks the Magus

Gazing now through wall of death

Lord of the shadows

I love your note: "I really think the old bastard would like this..." Yes, he would. Aleister was an extremely charismatic man who carried followers forward in the Dawn and accumulated enemies in the dusk, as all breakers of new ground must do.

Aleister Crowley was a piece of work and it was left to Doreen Valiente to shine his light to the end of that long tunnel. She did well. So mote it be.

After Thelema, then what? We need to move on, always.

I am a fan of the late Aleister Crowley. He has had a major influence on my tarot teachings and hermetic tendencies. The (Golden Dawn) Magus is cast right from the Zoroastrian and the magician in these lines is a tribute to ceremony in ancient times...

Your words bring this portrait to life, Keith. He looks self-assured and comfortable in his skin; unafraid to state his view. He does seem to gaze from beyond! Nicely done! -Sheila

Yeh, Old Aleister! Who will be able to ever forget him with his shadow ever hanging over us. Willie
He will know, wherever and whenever he might be, and he will let you know, that he knows, you will feel it! wonderful tribute Keith! Take care, and Bless You! Jasmin Horst

Great 5-7-5! I'm sure the 'old bastard' would appreciate it.
