"The standard form of the hexagram is not unicursal (i.e. it cannot be drawn in one continuous line, but rather has to be constructed in two separate halves). Unicursal forms (like the pentagram) are more convenient for ritual work where symbols are traced in the air with magical tools, and so a unicursal version of the hexagram was devised, probably by the Hermetic Order of the Golden Dawn, though Aleister Crowley later claimed it as his own invention. The figure is still used as a symbol of his Thelemic system and included in some versions of his Thoth Tarot deck.
All hexagrams represent the uniting of the macrocosm with the microcosm, but the unicursal version creates both the divine and the manifest with the same, single line, further accentuating the ultimate unity of the two. The disproportionate size of the points also places the emphasis on the spirit-matter dynamic, on the more direct paths to complete union. "
That was abit of background information on that symbol! I'm not sure if that was the most accurate information though, after all I'm not super knowledgeable on the subject (and never trust the internet 100% anyway) so if you are more well versed in the area do enlighten me on the right facts! I think I'm the sort of person who finds that liking a symbol just because it looks cool or interesting is insufficient, I always try to find out what it means. That being said, I have nothing against people who just admire something because it looks nice. This is just my way of how I like to perceive things. :)
Anyway, this DIY was fairly simple and straightforward! All I needed was some white fabric paint, a paintbrush, a pair of scissors, and a black t-shirt. It was kind of an impromptu spur of the moment DIY I wanted to attempt. And from my inspiration moodboard you can see that I've managed to conjure the final product as shown below.
1. Trace the outline
2. Cut out the shape
3. Paint the front and back of the shirt
Tadah! A fairly simple DIY for an amazing shirt. ;)
So about a month or so ago I did a shoot with Edric Chen, a photographer from Manila. It's my first international collab so it was pretty cool! I've been so impressed with his photography after seeing Paul's pictures that were snapped by him.
