This leather wallet was tooled and colored by hand with artwork based on HR Giger’s Baphomet painting, seen on the cover of his art book Necronomicon. It features 4 card pockets, 1 cash pocket, a chain eyelet, and an optional braided black leather chain. Made from high quality veg-tanned leathers, it will soften greatly and form to your cards with use. HR Giger is known by most for his work designing the xenomorphs in Ridley Scott’s movies Alien & Aliens, as well as Dennis Feldman’s creature ‘Sil’ in the film Species. To his fans, he’s known for the countless paintings and sculptures of biomechanical creatures, landscapes, and occult subjects. He is my favorite artist and I occasionally create items with my take on his works. If you like dark art, look up his art books online and you won’t be disappointed. Or visit his museum in Switzerland which features permanent installments of many of his works. After taking in his artwork you can pop into Giger Bar next door and enjoy a ‘HR Giger’ (Gin/Green Vodka/Green Lemon) or a shot of ‘Face Hugger’ (Vodka/Cassis/Tabasco.) . . . . . #edc #leather #leatherwork #leathergoods #handmade #handcrafted #everydaycarry #madeinusa #madeinus #wallet #gear #pocketdump #cardwallet #custom #gearnut #handtooled #handstitched #diy #custom #chainwallet #bifold #billfold #hotchkissleather hotchkissleather.com #hrgiger #baphomet #darkart

This wallet is available for purchase on my site. Please visit my site where you’ll find all info. ‘The Mad Monk’ Rasputin was a Russian mystic who gained the favor of the Tsar and royal family by ‘healing’ their ailing son. He was a charismatic man who influenced the Tsar and Tsarina with much controversy. The first assassination attempt came in 1914 when a prostitute approached him on the street and stabbed him in the gut. As Rasputin’s entrails hung out partially from his wound she cried “I’ve killed the Antichrist!!” However, he survived. Two years later in 1916 Grand Duke Pavlovich and Prince Yusupov poisoned his wine and food with cyanide to which he showed no signs of ill effects. The Prince took his revolver and shot him in the chest. Rasputin fell to the ground. A short while later after they tried to cover up the crime, Rasputin leapt to his feet upon their return and grabbed hold of the Prince. The Prince broke free and ran and while Rasputin chased him he was shot in the back by the Grand Duke. They then beat him with a truncheon and shot him point blank in the forehead. They wrapped him in a blanket and threw him from a bridge into an ice covered river. His body broke through the ice and floated beneath it. Upon the autopsy of his corpse water was discovered in his lungs, meaning he was still breathing when he was thrown beneath the ice… Hard To Kill is an understatement. . . . . . #edc #leather #leatherwork #leathergoods #handmade #handcrafted #everydaycarry #madeinusa #madeinus #wallet #gear #pocketdump #cardwallet #custom #gearnut #handtooled #handstitched #diy #custom #chainwallet #bifold #billfold #hotchkissleather hotchkissleather.com #rasputin #hardtokill
