  • The Emperor’s Throne

    He is seated upon the throne whose capitals are the heads of the Himalayan wild ram, since Aries means a Ram. At his feet, couchant, is the Lamb and the Flag, to confirm this attribution on the lower plane; for the ram, by nature, is a wild and courageous animal, lonely in lonely places, whereas when tamed and made to lie down in green pastures, nothing is left but the docile, cowardly, gregarious and succulent beast.
    – Aleister Crowley, Book of Thoth

    Tobacco leaf, stone-grey ambergris, cistus, benzoin, and Himalayan cedar.
