The Seventh Column

 This wonderful faux artifact comes to us from artist Anthony Jegu.  I always feel a bit guilty offering up an art piece on a props blog, but it takes a certain creative sensibility to create an objet d'art that evokes a sense of mystery and antiquity.  This does that in spades.

I’ve always liked Mesoamerican themed works either as art or as props and this one is no exception. It fuses Aztec elements with the Hellraiser cube – a logical association given the Aztec and Mayan interest in blood sacrifice, ritual self-torture, and other niceties of a complex civilization. “Gimme that old time religion – it’s good enough for me” from an old fan song (filk) version of the traditional.

For even more fun in this vein (pun intended), check out Alan Rogerson’s Aztec themed modern bathroom. There’s a lot of interesting details to be found. Hopefully Propnomicon will feature this at some time. There are a lot more images floating around the net

I forgot to put the link to the ultimate collection of Old Time Religion versions.
