Terror & Magnificence
Revenants Vol III – Terror & Magnificence takes its inspiration from the works of architect Nicholas Hawksmoor (1661- 1736) whose foreboding structures puncture London’s landscape.
Hawksmoor – referred to as ‘the Devil’s architect’ – continues to provoke interest for his distinctive churches, which introduced elements of Egyptology into traditional ecclesiastical settings. These curious architectural details and his recent reputation as a Freemason has prompted speculation that occult symbolism influenced his methods, and imbued his designs with an inherent ‘terror and magnificence’.NOTES: saffron, black pepper, birch tar, incense, tobacco, papyrus, myrrh, benzoin, labdanum, Haitian vetiver, pebbles
