Pyramid-Gallery Featuring the intricately designed music box replicas of French architect, artisan and designer Philip LeMarchand.

Posthumously credited as possibly one of the most prolific, if undiscovered, mass murderers in the history of the modern world, Philip LeMarchand first became known for his creation of bizarre, intricately designed music boxes which quickly became the rage of Europe.

"Those who follow the left-hand path, often called the black magicians or Brothers of the Shadow, are workers of spiritual and intellectual and psychical evil, and are therefore Vamacharins."

- Bolinger's Encyclopedia of the Occult - Pinol Press, 1946

The circular dial, described in LeMarchand's notes as "The Schetrum of the Vamacharins" is now a movable/wind up feature in Pyramid-Gallery's musical replica of The Lament Configuration.

"Raphael, Oder Artzt-Engel"
Abraham von Franckenberg

Perhaps Franckenberg's most famous work - and certainly his most unusual - is Raphael, Oder Arzt-Engel, first published posthumously in Amsterdam 1676.

The Hebrew name 'Raphael' means 'God has healed'. The archangel Raphael has traditionally been linked with healing and restoration, and it is clear that Franckenberg, in subtitling his manuscript Arzt-Engel ('doctor-angel', a play on Erzengel, 'archangel'), is aware of this fact and wishes to make it clear to his readers. The work, ostensibly a medical tract, draws on both the alchemy of Paracelsus and Böhmian mysticism. There is also evidence pointing to Franckenberg's interest in the Kabbalah and of links with Rosicrucianism and the ideas of Joachim of Fiore.

Puzzles come in many different incarnations. The passageway to Hell can be sought purposely or accidentally...

No matter what form or shape the puzzle manifests itself, one truth is certain. The puzzles are a myriad of logical sequences leading to the same configuration: Leviathan.

Springtime is for Harrowers!

"It was not Leviathan that first unlocked the door to this world. Rather it was life, nature, chaos that exploded through it, spilling into his perfect order. Eons ago, when this world was teeming, swirling, sweating life, blue and green, from every pore, it continued to swell, like mother with child. Finally, rupturing through the walls it did not even know existed, it burst into Hell, giving birth to light, and introducing life in that cold dark place."

~ Clive Barker's Book of the Damned - Volume I: "Compositions"

"The people who bind themselves to systems are those who are unable to encompass the whole truth and try to catch it by the tail; a system is like the tail of truth, but truth is like a lizard; it leaves its tail in your fingers and runs away knowing full well that it will grow a new one in a twinkling."

~ Ivan Turgenev to Leo Tolstoy (1856)

The Lament Configuration music box from Pyramid-Gallery

"LeMarchand's first and arguably most classic, puzzle construct. Its complexity was managed by expanding on the design of a similar box designed and constructed by Albertus Magnus in the thirteenth century. When operated properly, a pleasing melody issues from within which belies its true nature."

- excerpted from "Tucker's Encyclopedia of Mass Murderers"

I just stumbled upon an old online portfolio of mine from my College years, and I had NO idea just how much influence Hellraiser had on my artwork back then. Sheesh.
It's not the greatest looking and the design didn't go as planned for the original decorations but this is my friend puzzle box cake that I made for his birthday which had a semi liquid Center when cutting to the cake poured out like guts
I have sent you emails, without a response, checking on the progress of my order. I would really appreciate a reply. Thank you.
Super EXCITED to share I finally got my box open and........stop.............wait..........please.....................................................................................................................................................................What's Your Pleasure?

Nathan chose to ignore the polite notice from the Pyramid Gallery administrator and decided to eat consumables in the portrait section.
I'm interested in the scribe box. Is this box musical?
Why when you look at Rose Park, Missoula on Google Maps it looks like the area has been rotated 45 degrees clockwise from the rest of the town?
We love acting, this is the guy that play Painhead
