The cat, being a nocturnal creature who can see in the dark, is a walker between worlds — especially of our world and the underworld. Growing above its skull and skeletal paws is a chthonic nightshade plant symbolizing the path between worlds akin to Jack’s magical beanstalk. Hidden in the nightshade’s leaves is my original sigil representing the key to the other worlds. This talismanic illustration can be used to help open the way between our world and the world of the spirits and the dead.
