Those of you in Austin, Texas have a little less than a week left to check out As Above So Below: The Art of the Secret Society at the esteemed Domy Books!
The exhibit features Masonic lodge art, and other fraternal art and artifacts, and it also happens to feature this piece:
…which might look familiar if you've picked up a copy of Catalog No. 439: Burlesque Paraphernalia and Side Degree Specialties and Costumes!
According to the notes, it's some kind-of initiation device created in 1922… Yeah. I don't even want to know.
Texans have until Thursday, June 9th to check out this free exhibit at Domy Books [913 E Cesar Chavez], but everyone worldwide can check out (not free) Catalog No. 439: Burlesque Paraphernalia and Side Degree Specialties and Costumes.
Thanks to Russell Etchen for the tip-off on our Facebook page!
