The Pictorial Method / 51 Figure 21 for completed sigils.
Of course, you may also use Hebrew letters tattwa symbols, or any geometrical symbols you pre-fer. (There are very few glyphs which have not been -attributed with some meaning.) But as pointed out before, you should not just copy some symbols out of books which have no life for you or are not vivid to you. Naturally, you may live in the paradigm that these "ancient" symbols have already developed a life of their own, having been vitalized by legions of magicians before us, but even in that case you will first have to create an inner contact to the glyphs yourself, e.g., by employing them frequently in a pertinent magical context.
One could object that this technique contradicts the basis of Spare's system because it does not work with individual sigils. However, this is only partly correct. The individual elements making up such a sigil may consist of established symbols, but the end result is definitely individual because of the selection of the basic symbols and the simplification/stylization and decoration, which is executed here again. The sigils from our last examples could be enlarged in the manner of Figure 22.
Let us not forget that alienation is a significant element of sigil construction.
Now that we have covered the important aspects of the pictorial method, let us take a look at the man-trical spell method.
