OKAY GUYS I KNOW THAT THE THING IN THE CORNER IS STANS HAT DESIGN. SHOOT ME, BUT IM SICK OF HEARING IT :CCCCC

PINE TREE: Pine – The pine tree has become a universal symbol of life and fertility and is associated with the Greek god Bacchus. Like all evergreen trees which do not lose their leaves or green color during the wintertime, the pine tree stands for immortality. In Japan, the pine tree stands as a tribute to strong character and energy because it holds up against strong winds.

STAR WITH AN EYE: 
The pentagram or pentalpha is a symbol which has long been affiliated with demonic activity.  From at least the early Middle Ages an entire genre of ritual magic handbooks and manuals has claimed to originate from King Solomon based, no doubt, on his legendary reputation for conjuring and employing demons in the construction of his temple.  Among the oldest of these grimoires is the Testament of Solomon dating from perhaps as early as the First Century BC.  This text includes a diagram of the pentalpha and relates that Solomon had a ring inscribed with that symbol which gave to him the ability to call forth demons and to have them work his will. The image in the manuscript shows the star point up. Inscribed on a ring however, the direction of the point might be immaterial as it could be perceived either way. As far as we now know, the first printed artwork for an image of a goat face in a five-pointed star appeared in an engraving on page 387 of  the 1897 book La Clef de la Magie Noire, by French nobleman and occultist Stanislas de Guaita. The book was part of his multi-volume Essais de Sciences Maudites which not only put forth some of his own occult ideas underlying his establishment of a group of Rosicrucians but also served as a platform for his share of the accusations of Satanism that he and his enemies—such as La Bas author J.K. Huysmans and friends—were publicly throwing at each other at the time. De Guaita wrote that he considered Eliphas Lévi to be one of the greatest geniuses of the 19th century so it is not surprising that he would take one of Lévi’s concepts and embellish it further. Lévi mentions the demon Lilith in the above passage and the de Guaita image incorporates her name into the graphic along with that of Samael. In different places Lévi calls Samael both a white-light genie of Mars as well as the Hebrew name for a demonic force. Lévi makes no mention of Leviathan but the de Guaita image is encirlced by this name  in Hebrew script.
In describing the graphic, de Guaita only slightly expands on Lévi and says nothing about Samael, Lilith, or Leviathan. After describing the point-up pentagram as a white-light symbol of man “voluntarily rejoined in the providential plan,” de Guaita notes:
But oriented in the opposite direction, the pentagrammatic Star is nothing more than a symbol of iniquity, perdition, blasphemy: its two points in the air become the horns of the foul Goat threatening Heaven, and whose head is framed with the stellar pentacle, with its low ears in the side branches, and its beard in disorder in the single lower point.
The pentagram (pentalpha) comes from the Pythagorean tradition. The goat’s or ram’s head within it refers to the Goat of Mendes, a symbol of the Egyptian Neter Amon, who was called “the hidden one, he who abides in all things, the soul of all phenomena” and is thus the closest Neter to the Dark Force which is seen to permeate and motivate all nature. The two concentric circles which contain the word “Leviathan” written in Hebrew (starting at the lowermost point and moving counterclockwise) stem from the traditions of the Ophite (serpent) Jews, and this is the essence of the Dragon of the Abyss, descended from Tiamat, sometimes symbolized as an ouroboros (serpent biting its own tail forming a circle). Thus, in one sigil, we find a confluence of several cultures’ approach to embodying what we call Satan.



LLAMA: Llama: symbol of endurance, balanced action.

THE HAND: Hamsa.The hamsa (Arabic: خمسة‎ khomsah, also romanized khamsa, meaning lit. "five") is a palm-shaped amulet popular throughout North Africa, and commonly used in jewelry and wall hangings.[1][2] Depicting the open right hand, an image recognized and used as a sign of protection in many societies throughout history, the hamsa is believed to provide defense against the evil eye. It is also known as the hand of Fatima, so named to commemorate Muhammad's daughter Fatima Zahra. Levantine Christians call it the hand of Mary, for the mother of Jesus. Following its incorporation into Jewish tradition via its widespread use in the Islamic world, it was also renamed the hand of Miriam for Miriam, sister of Moses.

okay. as you might know, finnish and estonian belong in the same language family and are therefore very similar.

darnaguen:

In fact, you could say that someone speaking Estonian sounds pretty much like a drunk foreigner trying to speak Finnish. And vice versa, of course.

However, there are also some remarkable differences. Most prominent example being how sometimes the same word can have a completely different meaning. Here are some of the funniest examples:

  • Pulmat Fin. “troubles” or “dilemmas”. Est. “a wedding”.
  • Kassi Fin. “a bag”. Est. “a cat”.
  • Hallitus Fin. “government”. Est. “mold”.
  • Karata Fin. “to run away”. Est. “to jump”.
  • Hukata Fin. “to lose/misplace”. Est. “to execute”.
  • Aurata Fin. “to plow”. Est. “to steam”.
  • Hingata Fin. “to rub”. Est. “to breathe”.
  • Iva Fin. “scorn” Est. “grain”.
  • Kalju Fin. “bald” Est. “a big rock”.
  • Ori Fin. “a stallion” Est. “a slave”.
  • Surija Fin. “a mourner” Est. “a dying person”.

And that’s only the tip of the iceberg. Gotta be careful this weekend, even though many Estonians speak or understand Finnish. :D

Reclaimed Words on Reclaimed Wood
Nicola and the Newfoundlander:
Each magnet is sawn from reclaimed antique wood, taken from Brooklyn watertowers, Coney Island boardwalks, and pickle and wine tanks, then combined with a 1″x1″ miniature photograph of words, cut and stenciled on blocks, that have faded from usage.

A priest challenges a rabbi to a debate on the spiritual condition of Jewish people. But neither speaks the other's language, and...well, I won't spoil the punch line.
