witchy....



(me and some small witch bottles, 400 year old English witch bottle)
400 years ago some people made Bellarmine bottles, or witch bottles, for use in spells in England. You would maybe put a lock of an enemies hair in it then piss on it and bury it, really!
The frowning, bearded face was modeled after a Catholic Cardinal from the Inquistion, Cardinal Bellarmine.
So I bumped into Carol the other day and she asked if I was gonna make some, so I did :)
