Jackalope Gallery

Post by Vipera aspis atra »

Name of Shop: Jackalope Gallery (or Jackalope)
Owners: Me.
Shop website: https://www.jackalopegallery.com/
Social media: No.
CH Forum/Community Usernames: You'd know me as Noctua/Mania. I occasionally go by the artist name Pyra.

Length of time in business:
Since 2010 or 2011.

Length of time practicing/learning:
I have a family lineage of involvement with esoteric practices, I've been learning and practicing since childhood. The amount of years I've been in business also reflects the amount of time I have allowed myself to perform work for the public, developing and fine-tuning new techniques and methodologies for offering as I've gone along.
My passion is in the dualistic nature of things. The mentality I adopt in my work is the one which challenges and enlightens.
I have a lot of experience with chthonic or 'nightside' areas of interest, because I like playing with the darkness quite a bit, but my accomplishments are not exclusive to this. You'd be surprised at what you can achieve in magic when you give your entire life to it without making excuses.

Credentials:
My work these days is centered on the creation of ensouled artifacts & expressions as a painter and multimedia artist, as well as on my discovery and study of haunted antiques & unusual relics (I was raised into a family business dealing with antiques; apart from directly being taught their value, I was able to identify their history through clairsentience which in turn further developed my psychic abilities).
I also perform as an Oracle for those who need the aid of the spirits or gods, I am an intuitive mystic of multiple skills for receiving and transmitting the messages and energies that need to come through

In my oracular work apart from direct channeling of the information, I have experience with many types of divination, none are off-limits to me. I have knowledge and gifts imparted by my heritage. I own very powerful, personal aids in this work and several of them were passed down through my family with an eras-old patina to them which makes all the difference, honestly.
With regard to my haunted 'art' as I will call it, most everything I make is done ritualistically or involves direct possession from the forces summoned into it. I am highly sensitive, what I do is instinctive and potent.
To get where I am today I've had to go through many occasions of spiritual death and theia mania, each time further opening me to clarity on how the divine operates in our world, and each time strengthening my gift of hearing, sensing and receiving from intelligences beyond typical human perception which is another part of how I know a lot of what I know how to do.
Of course I am also well-read and incorporate into my work what I have gained from anthropological texts, ancient mystery religions, folklore etc. where it comes to components of magic and ritual.

I am in the process of writing and offering a number of books, grimoires which would shed light on some core ideas behind my unique awareness and practice, in a way that I will leave up to interpretation.
All magic is art to me and true art has spirit, there is no separation between these concepts in my life or how I apply myself, and that is the sentiment I share through my website.

. . .

I only ever want to offer something of true substance and over the years I have reincarnated my shopfront in order to reflect my evolution of understanding what that really means to me and how I must present it to you.
It is not your typical shop, please read my Contact & Policy page for a bit of understanding on how I manage sales.
The 'Artifacts' presently up as of the time I am writing this are a magical display, they may be for sale at a later time and there will be more items exhibited for viewing or sale as time goes on.

That's wild, I find these classification names to be rather poetic. The rhythmic nature of them begins to sound and feel like an incantation.

Yes, I will accept the compliment of your unbridled joy. Lol. And it's nice to see you too.

It strikes me I should update this thread with points that I've made apparent in previous announcements, given those announcements are eventually deleted but these points continue to pertain to how the style of my shop functions:

- Subscribers to my site will very occasionally receive newsletters, and when they do it is usually with opportunities not advertised publicly. So you would only be aware of everything I am offering by being a subscriber.
I have no interest in spamming people, this is 1-2 newsletters a month at most and sometimes none at all for the month.
If you receive a newsletter and don't remember subscribing, it may be because you sent a contact form through my site --if you do not wish to receive them, let me know and I'll fix that for you.

- Apart from ritually ensouled artifacts, grimoires, oraculum and found artifacts of occult value (being mainstays of my site), I sometimes offer mass ritual/magical services, special oracular events and the like surrounding certain celebrations or astrologically suited timing.
I am also in the process of developing related projects which will serve as an expansion of what I do through new mediums; for instance, there are art-magic films underway and I will make an appropriate announcement with further details when the time is right to introduce them.

- The Oraculum I offer cover a wide breadth of focus; as stated in a previous explanation:
The monthly-forecast example you see does not even touch the tip of the iceberg when it comes to what I am doing every day through these, as it goes far beyond the use of tools into visions I have, telepathic guidance and mediumship.
I often am looking into such diverse subject matter as past lives, alternate realities, warnings or prophecies of the future, spirit messages and commentary from the gods and saints, one's auric field or atmosphere to needle out answers to any personal or home-related issues, and deeper into the layers of your being or the subject you may be fixated upon.
My spiritual and deific contacts are many, and there is very little out of my reach to give you some idea of what you are so seeking.


-I do sometimes accept Trades of certain materials I may need in my practice (such as sacred dirt/rocks/wood/herbs) from various parts of the world that would take me more time/money to source on my own. In return I may offer readings, spellwork, discounts and the like. So if you think you have something unique to offer me let me know, and I will be forthright of whether or not I am interested at the time. I may also announce certain needs I have along these lines to make it easier for whomever is able to offer that to me.

-If you need Help with a supernatural issue, and you're not sure who to consult about it but are drawn to inquire of me for the task, then please do. I can let you know very quickly whether or not I am capable where it comes to aiding in your situation. I may at the very least be able to give an assessment of what is going on and some suggestions --that isn't a free service as I simply am not in a position to be spending so much time and effort without pay at this juncture of my life, but I am flexible and you have my word that I'm not looking to take advantage of your problems.

- On the point of flexibility with Payments, I am always open to allowing reasonable arrangements/layaway options.
*I accept payment via PayPal, and will either arrange a custom invoice for you, or provide my PayPal link for completion of orders.

. . .

As well, the following info which I recently posted to the Customer Notification subforum reflects the updated state of my shop, and I am adding it to this thread for similar reasons to the above:

Now when you go to my 'Artifacts' section, you will see it discerned as the Feature page --this is where I will be displaying any art which is not for sale but for viewing.

In addition there are now two links located before this, labeled 'Tomes' and 'Objects of Desire'.
At the Tomes page you will find my art grimoires beginning to trickle in, complete with price options and summaries. There isn't much to see now, but I am continuing to work on it in my spare time. As with all of my works, request for purchase is still made through the Jackalope Gallery Contact form.

At the Objects of Desire page you will find any/all other artifacts for sale which can include occult pieces, magical dolls, and other such relics. Currently nothing is listed there, I will make announcements whenever there are new offerings to share.
Pieces from the 'Feature' page may be added to this area over time if I am selling them online as well.

What are you getting?

You will notice that up to this point there has been a decided lack of information on my website concerning items presented.
I would like to keep details on my website discreet where it comes to the magical properties or occult processes involved in production of all on offer. I believe in the power of curiosity and the draw of Fate to lead persons to inquire about anything I put out there.
I would like to preserve the old ways of magic which call through mystery and intrigue, rather than telling the world what to expect, when it is not for the world to know --only that person who would engage with the magic.
In this way I can maintain the significance of all I may offer for those who are seriously pulled toward inquiring more of me.

Basically, I will not be publicly displaying here how an artifact or art grimoire will benefit you, what abilities it can bring to your life or 'what it does'. I will be showing or describing *what it is*,
and you can anticipate that magic is involved based on the fact it is always involved with my work.
There is no distinction between what it is and what it does. What you see is what you get. I will remain forthcoming privately on the magical side of an item, but only to help you get a grasp of your descent into the unknown.

My interest is not in marketing what I do, it is in letting it speak for itself and show you for itself what it is about. Ultimately this is to encourage an organic and personal connection to any spiritual or magical piece, instead of dictating that for you.
