Witch Wife Succubus

The Artwork depicts the Spirit (Witch) Wife of a Shaman, from whom he derives his psychic powers and otherworldly abilities. The Ghost Witch specifically alludes to the practice of Siberian Shamanism in particular.

The Spirit Wife can also be considered as being a salacious Succubus, a Tibetan Buddhist would call a Dakini, who are seen to be Faerie Sorceresses or Ghost Witches.

The spectral Dakinis can also be seen as being similar to Genies, whose Genie bottle/lamp abode is the Shamans drum. The Dakinis are very much like the Valkyries in Norse lore, who are the Witch wives of the Shaman God Odin, whose Shaman's drum is the eight-legged Night-Mare, Sliepnir.

The pen and ink Artwork was done on A4 sized heavy cartridge paper. The Artwork was originally used as an illustration to illustrate an article of mine about Shamanism, which was published in the UK Pagan magazine, entitled, Pentacle. The Artwork was later used to illustrate my published books.
