El Diablo Rojo - Statue
Loaded and Consecrated Statue. Red Earthenware with metal Trident.
This Red Devil Fetish, created and consecrated for Mesa Negra (Black Table/Altar) practices has been made by a Bruja Pactada, being a traditional Latin American practitioner of witchcraft that have entered into the league of the Devil during her spiritual training and thus became a Bruja or Malera Negra, and as such this magical object is unique.
This Statue depicts the folkloric winged and Horned Devil, with left foot shaped as a cloven hoof and right foot as a roosterís claw. In Left hand he holds his trident of infernal authority, which can be removed and replaced by rolled up petition paper, or some other fitting objects. His right hand is stretched out in the gesture signifying the will to receive payment, as the Devil gives only in return for what he receives.
The fetish was made hallowed and during the consecration process loaded with elements such as sulphur, soil from the Devilís place of power, bones, herbs and other elements connected to the folkloric and chthonic aspect of the Devil and then sealed with black wax from the central candle of the Mesa Negra/Black Table.
This fetish demands veneration and feeding and is meant for practitioners and not for mere collectors, as if untended it will bring nothing but calamity. The traditional powers ascribed to El Diablo within these contexts are protection, power, wealth, virility, sexual allure, the breaking of curses, black magic and forbidden knowledge.
The offerings demanded on weekly bases, given often on Monday or Saturday nights, are liquor, red or black candles and tobacco. More elaborate offerings are given during specific workings, in accordance to the nature of the work itself.
A special Quickening Incense will accompany the statue for its primary activation, which most take place upon a crossroads where the caretaker of the statue is to call upon El Diablo and promise to take care of his fetish in return for his blessings and sorcerous empowerments.
The statue is circa 33cm tall and heavy for its size.
