Fortuna Satania is Latin for "Satanic Fortune". I came up with this illustration for a project but wanted it to stand strong on its own as well.
There's a lot of symbolism going on, and I plan on going clock-wise to help explain it:
First, the feathers are meant to symbolize owl feathers. They represent wisdom.
The inverted pyramid is more of an in-joke: The "eye in the pyramid" is meant for insight and wisdom, but having it inverse in this case was meant to represent "passive knowledge".
The left hand is directly below The Sigil of Lucifer, the oldest symbol of Lucifer.
On her arm are two tattoos:
The first is the The Alchemist Symbol of Sulfur/Sigil of Leviathan on her arm. It's incircled by another alchemy symbol, this time Silver. I used silver, this time more in the LaVey tradition of Silver being the metal of Hell while gold represents the metal of heaven.
The second tattoo is the Alchemist symbol of Amalgamation. That is meant to represent all of the elements (the woman, the skull, the mythology) combining its power into one.
The goat skull is meant to represent a few things: Satan and the nature of life.
Her right hand, our left, is pointed up. This, along with the lowered left hand, is mean to represent Baphomet and the ideal behind the original illustration of it, "As above, as below."
Her right hand also has 2 fingers crossed, in this case representing luck.
Above this hand, we see the alchemist symbol of Silver, this time as 3 lines.
As for the woman herself, she is simply alive. Her beauty is meant to represent the joys of life and the pleasures of the flesh. Her hairstyle is meant to show her own personal devotion to the left-hand path and Satan.
...The piercings are just meant to be AWESOME.
So that's it! It's the most intense personal piece I've done in a while.
