Mr. Crowley’s Artifact
An unassuming, yet intricately decorated slice of walnut? Hardly. With unusual engravings, this dark walnut specimen surely has stories to tell.
This rarity, believed to have been the property of Aleister Crowley, was allegedly found under the floorboards during the renovation of Boleskin House in the mid-1990s. The property owners at the time, doubtful of any historical significance, rubbished the object. A local Scotsman – an old-timer and once-groundskeeper of the Boleskin Cemetery – recognized the board immediately and took it for himself. Upon his death in January 2019, the board exchanged hands many times. This item is currently in possession of Peculiar Artifacts™ and is now available for your buying pleasure.Disclaimer: Mr. Crowley’s Paddle, the illustration, and the board for sale are works of fiction. Aleister Crowley was a very real historical figure, as is the Boleskin House, the Boleskin Cemetery, and various symbols. With the exception of historical events and figures, any resemblance to persons living or dead is coincidental.
