There are twelve hours of daylight every day. During the day people can walk safely. They can see because they have the light of this world. But at night there is danger of stumbling because they have no light... Our friend Lazarus has fallen asleep, but now I will go and wake him up! -John 11:9-11
Drawing upon the orthodox and heretical saint lore of European Catholicism, we have christened these spirit fetishes each as "Lazarus", further qualified both by the unique qualities of their charges as well as their physical appearances. In this way, the alchemical salt, or the bodily form, and alchemical sulphur, the qualities of their charges, build a foundation for the alchemical mercury, or a sympathetic spirit of each user's calling, to be stably housed.
Each Lazarus has its own particular propensities for drawing the spirits of the dead, through the grace and power of their components, including but not limited to:
- dirts from various places of power
- necromantic herbs and minerals
- various animal and insect ingredients
- human bone powder
- other various and sundry miscellany
As these are meant as stable houses for spirits of the dead, the specific spirit or spirits which may be housed in each is summoned and seated by the purchaser through the included Rite of the Rolling of the Stone. As the charges color the potential of any spirit drawn, care should be exercised and the aesthetics and charge be taken into account as necessarily sympathetic to each witch or sorcerer's desired spirit ally.
While the complete array of possibility with a Lazarus fetish is limited somewhere in the intersection between ingenuity, availability of ingredient, and intercession and corporation of Spirit, we are happy at this time to offer the above available fetishes.
Each Lazarus will come with a fumigation and a vial of oil whose uses are detailed in an accompanying cloth scroll, which will include the Rite of the Rolling of the Stone, used for the summoning and seating of a sympathetic spirit.
Lazarus come forth! -John 11:43
