POISON APPLE PRINTSHOP

: : Midnight falls where the woodlands kiss the sea.
Steps a seer through the veil,
conjuring and tempting thee.
All is shadowed as the realm of men sleeps still,
Her nocturne not a song,
but the scratching of a quill. : :

I remember when I was younger and I wanted to be beautiful; now I’m older and I want to be intelligent. I want to burn hearts with brilliance and engulf souls with compassion. I want to be loved for my thoughts and nothing else.

The Mourning Plait by Adrienne Rozzi // POISON APPLE PRINTSHOP
A braided lock of hair cut from the tresses of a dying witch. Historically, locks of hair have been utilized throughout history in many different superstitious and sentimental roles. It is sometimes believed that owning a lock of someone’s hair grants one power over an individual. Lover’s would often exchange locks of hair as a sentimental ode to their undying love and devotion. Perhaps the most commonly known purpose was during the Victorian times when it was customary to keep a lock of hair from a deceased loved one as a memento to comfort the surviving family in their time of mourning.

Artemis by Adrienne Rozzi // POISON APPLE PRINTSHOP
Artemis, greek goddess of the hunt, wilderness, and wild animals, rides her familiar through the deep forest. She is a warrior acting as protector of the woods and all life that dwells within it’s green embrace. In this drawing, Artemis also represents the goddess and witch in all her strength and confidence. The goat is an allusion to the Baphomet, a goat-headed diety with roots in Pagan history and thereafter in occult history. The Baphomet is a symbol of complete balance (dark and light, male and female) as well as ritual magic and witchcraft. Many believe the Baphomet represents a version of the horned-god who was a consort of the Goddess, here represented by Artemis. Overall, ‘Artemis’ represents the union of the goddess and horned-god as well as the strong relationship between magick folk and nature.‘Artemis’ is original artwork, hand drawn and printed by artist Adrienne Rozzi. Artemis’ eyes are gilded with copper leaf so they shine and sparkle. LIMITED EDITION of 18.

The Cornucopia by Adrienne Rozzi // POISON APPLE PRINTSHOP
A Cornucopia overflows with gifts from the Autumn harvest. Placed upon the altar of a woodland witch, the horn of plenty spills pumpkins, poison apples, belladonna, and mugwort amongst the implements of the witch’s spell work. Three candles bathe the scene in a golden glow as incense, potions, a goblet, grimoire, and athame await their magical purpose. The witch uses these tools to enchant the forest land with abundant crops. Once harvested she uses the crops to make potions both healing and harmful and imbue her athame, or ceremonial dagger, with the power of the mother goddess. Her serpent familiar slithers through the harvest as a symbol of cosmic energy and the ongoing cycle of death and resurrection.

And, like a dying lady lean and pale,
Who totters forth, wrapp’d in a gauzy veil,
Out of her chamber, led by the insane
And feeble wanderings of her fading brain,
The moon arose up in the murky east
A white and shapeless mass.

Art thou pale for weariness
Of climbing heaven and gazing on the earth,
Wandering companionless
Among the stars that have a different birth,
And ever changing, like a joyless eye
That finds no object worth its constancy?

The Moon by Percy Bysshe Shelley

The Iron Maiden by Adrienne Rozzi // POISON APPLE PRINTSHOP
A maiden stands expressionless waiting to wrap her victim in her lethal embrace. Her stern demeanor and hollow gaze offer no remorse for those who find themselves her unlucky sufferer. When put inside the maiden’s empty body a victim is pierced by hundreds of iron spikes. Each one skewers only deep enough to inflict pain but never enough to kill. Death is prolonged as the unfortunate sufferer can not move but dies a truly torturous slow death from loss of blood and excruciating pain. Poppies pour forth from the empty chasm of her barbed interior as an ominous symbol of blood and death. The Iron Maiden is a historical torture device often made of wood and iron. It is a common misconception that this weapon dates back to the Middle Ages but in actuality was invented around 1800 as a crude object intended for commercial exhibition.
