This famous image by the London esoteric artist and magus Austin Osman Spare has served as an icon for generation of young occultists since the 1980s, appearing on tee shirts, in sketch book, and in many forms, serving as an alter-ego or avatar for more recent generations. This skilled pen-and-ink drawing is one of the most accomplished we have seen of such works of hommage to the master. Treadwell's has had it framed, so it is now presented to best effect.
