The Horned God



Here's a vintage card from the Museum of Witchcraft at Boscastle in Cornwall. I picked it up in the early 90s when the museum had a Hammer House of Horror type ambience.

"To give is to receive". A young witch offers the Horned God the foetus, proof of her conception with the Spirit Force from the World Beyond the Grave. In return the Horned God will assign to the witch a familiar Spirit or Guardian Angle to serve her and to be the catalyst of her magical power.

We went to check it out when we stayed dn in Boscastle a few years ago, but the proprietors had gone on holiday the same week as we were staying there so it was shut LOL!

Someone told me it had been ruined in the floods a little while back...

bah!!
yes they got washed out by the floods, but they got a lot of interest and the collection is better than ever now.
it's well worth a visit.
