This is a reproduction of a talisman design found in the "Key of Solomon", a grimoire of ceremonial magic attributed to King Solomon. Containing influences of Hermetic alchemy, Roman Astrology and Kabbalah, Solomon's magic is a cornerstone of the Western Esoteric occult tradition. The grimoire explains: "It serveth to invoke those Spirits who can transport thee from one place unto another, over a long distance and in short time." Samuel Liddell MacGregor Mathers, a ceremonial magician and editor of the most common edition of the book, further describes: "Characters in the 'Passing of the River' Alphabet, forming Spirits' Names. The versicle is from Psalm xci. 11, 12:--'He shall give His Angels charge over thee, to keep thee in all thy ways. They shall bear thee up in their hands.'"
