This vintage art purports to illistrate a Black Mass during a witches Sabbath. Most if not all claims of witchcraft and devil worship from the medeval period are today thought to be fabrications of superstitious people and church propaganda of the time. Regardless the art here is evokative of the periods superstitiousnes, with a dark and erotic undertone. It seems like most people took it as a fact that witches, pagans and heritics just plain had alot more fun than regular God fearing folk. They were probably correct in this beleif since life was tough and most of the teaching of the time were about self denial. most will be surprised to learn this work was created by Martin Van Maele around 1910 or so.
