Alchemy is an ancient branch of natural philosophy, a philosophical and protoscientific tradition that was historically practiced in China, India, the Muslim world, and Europe. In its Western form, alchemy is first attested in a number of pseudepigraphical texts written in Greco-Roman Egypt during the first few centuries CE. Alchemists attempted to purify, mature, and perfect certain materials. Common aims were Chrysopoeia, the transmutation of “base metals” (lead/meat) into “noble metals” (gold/light), the creation of an elixir of immortality, and the creation of panaceas able to cure any disease. The perfection of the human body and soul was thought to result from the alchemical magnum opus “Great Work“. The concept of creating the philosophers’ stone was variously connected with all of these projects. Islamic and European alchemists developed a basic set of laboratory techniques, theories, and terms, some of which are still in use today.
They did not abandon the Ancient Greek philosophical idea that everything is composed of four elements (plus ether), and they tended to guard their work in secrecy, often making use of cyphers and cryptic symbolism. In Europe, the 12th century translations of medieval Islamic works on science and the rediscovery of Aristotelian philosophy gave birth to a flourishing tradition of Latin alchemy. This late medieval tradition of alchemy would go on to play a significant role in the development of early modern science (particularly chemistry and medicine). Modern discussions of alchemy are generally split into an examination of its exoteric practical applications and its esoteric spiritual aspects, despite criticisms by scholars such as Eric J. Holmyard and Marie-Louise von Franz that they should be understood as complementary. The former is pursued by historians of the physical sciences, who examine the subject in terms of early chemistry, medicine, and charlatanism, and the philosophical and religious contexts in which these events occurred. The latter interests historians of esotericism, psychologists, and some philosophers and spiritualists. The subject has also made an ongoing impact on literature and the arts.

Gothic Evil Grim Reaper on Bone Throne with Scythe and Skulls Statue
Add a dash of fright in your house with this Gothic Evil Grim Reaper Statue. This finely detailed and hand painted work of art is certain to put a scare into your guests and is definitely not for the faint of heart. This spooky sculpture will be the crowning centerpiece of your mantel, shelf or tabletop when included in your collection of Gothic decor. Truly a work of art that would make a great fantasy gift idea also for a cave man. The Grim Reaper is a spectral entity that is said to be the sentient manifestation of Death itself. Since the 14th century, Death has commonly been perceived to be an animated human skeleton, draped in pitch black robes and carrying a scythe. With this scythe, the Reaper severs the soul’s last ties to life and grants the soul safe passage to the afterlife. The Grim Reaper has often, falsely, been depicted as an evil spirit that preys on mortals. In truth, however, she is neither evil nor good, merely a force of nature and order. Death is a fundamental part of life and it is the Grim Reaper’s duty to claim the souls of the deceased so as to maintain the balance of nature.
The Reaper does not “kill” mortals, but merely guides their spirits to the next realm and it is not her place to judge souls or determine what will become of them. The oldest Death figure who resembles the Grim Reaper myth is Thanatos, the Primordial embodiment of demise from Greco-Roman myth. Thanatos was one of two twin sons born to Nyx, the primordial goddess of Night with Thanatos’s twin having been the sleep god Hypnos. In Thanatos’s most famous myth, he was captured and imprisoned by the Sysyphus, the mad king of Corinth. Thanatos was chained and bound in the castle of Sysyphus resulting in no living being on Earth being able to die which lead to an uproar from the God of War, Ares. Ares freed Thanatos and Sisyphus was sent to Tartarus, the Greek Hell. The origin of the Grim Reaper figure comes from the Medieval Europe during the 14th century when more and more Europeans found themselves dying of the mysterious new plague known as “Black Death” (now known as Bubonic Plague).
The Grim Reaper embodied the concept of the living being like wheat which the Reaper harvests when they grow too old, hence the reaper’s scythe. Although the figure is generally devoid of religious ties the Reaper is often affiliated with the Horseman of Death from the Abrahamic faith, one of the four horsemen of the Apocalypse. Due to this the Grim Reaper is often portrayed as having a Pale Horse. The Grim Reaper is a near universal representation of demise and is found in a wide variety of different cultures with many different names. British influenced cultures tend to portray the Reaper as being male or devoid of gender or sex but in languages with grammatical gender the concept of Death is expressly female. Due to this several culture’s variants of the Grim Reaper are expressly female or at the least feminine leaning.

Quality designer resin museum replica is clad in 16th century style Italian armor, proudly displaying his sword and a chestplate emblazoned with intricately sculpted lions. Features a two-tone metallic finish. Castle guard, in the European feudal tenure, an arrangement by which some tenants of the king or of a lesser lord were bound to provide garrisons for royal or other castles. The obligation would in practice be discharged by subtenants, individual knights who held their fiefs by virtue of performing such service for a fixed period each year. Because the castle concerned might be far from the fiefs charged to guard it, the duty was early commuted for money payments. Some castle guards, or ward rents, survived into modern times.
Knight service, in the European feudal system, military duties performed in return for tenures of land. The military service might be required for wars or expeditions or merely for riding and escorting services or guarding the castle. To obtain such service, a lord could either enfeoff (grant a fief to) one man for direct and personal service or enfeoff someone who would bring with him other knights. The number of knights supplied usually bore some relation to the size of the fief. Originally services and equipment were supplied at the vassal’s expense. The normal period of service was 40 days a year. In England knight service was held due to the king only. In France, however, the lesser nobility as well could claim such service and thus were able to achieve great personal power. As time went on, variations developed. From the mid 12th century fewer knights were being summoned, but they often were serving for longer than 40 days; sometimes service due was rendered in scutage, a tax paid in lieu of service. By 1300 the decline in the importance of cavalry, the increasing use of mercenaries, and the resistance of tenants had combined to reduce substantially the number of knights summoned from any fief.

Head of Medusa Gothic Greek Statue
Medusa Greek Statue created by master artisan and made using cold cast bronze technique. Cold casting involves mixing resin and bronze material together to create detailed sculpture with metallic surface. Medusa, in Greek Mythology, the most famous of the monster figures known as Gorgons. She was usually represented as a winged female creature having a head of hair consisting of snakes; unlike the Gorgons, she was sometimes represented as very beautiful. Medusa was the only Gorgon who was mortal; hence her slayer, Perseus, was able to kill her by cutting off her head. From the blood that spurted from her neck sprang Chrysaor and Pegasus, her two sons by Poseidon. The severed head, which had the power of turning into stone all who looked upon it, was given to Athena, who placed it in her shield; according to another account, Perseus buried it in the marketplace of Argos.
According to Hesiod and Aeschylus, Medusa lived and died on Sarpedon, somewhere near Cisthene. The 2nd-century BC novelist Dionysios Skytobrachion puts her somewhere in Libya, where Herodotus had said the Berbers originated her myth as part of their religion. Originally, Medusa was a beautiful maiden. She desecrated Athena’s temple by lying there with Poseidon. Outraged, Athena turned Medusa’s hair into serpents. Medusa was killed by Perseus with the help of Athena and Hermes. He cut off her head and gave it to Athena. Medusa’s head was put onto Athena’s shield; the blood dropped from the wound produced innumerable serpents that infest Africa. Head of Medusa Gothic Statue Size: 17.6 inches / 44 cm x 14 inches / 35 cm x 6.3 inches / 16 cm.
