On this day, to commemorate the 100th Armistice Day, Zeena issues a highly personal glimpse into her first hand experiences of death and impermanence. This limited edition 2020 calendar features solemn yet beautiful reminders of Impermanence in its many guises. Whatever your personal battles, great or small, we all experience the same pain, grief and suffering from death, loss and impermanence. Whatever your religion, sexual orientation, race, or political leanings, there is no escaping the one great unifier: Death.
Most prefer to look away from that truth, or conversely attempt to glamorize, parody or mock such uncomfortable realities. Yet this beautifully printed, gallery quality art calendar doesn't pander to the ironic or flippant but looks at the greater meaning of death and impermanence in a compassionate and bare manner.
Each image reveals Zeena's eye for minimalism, composition, symbolism and tableaux. Several of the artist's first-hand experiences from serving as death's midwife to humans and animals are conveyed. April hints at the life-long trauma to civilian children of war in a still life comprised of WWII souvenirs of the boy, Bernd-Peter S., who wrote in his Tagesbuch of the ordeals he and his classmates endured through the end of the war. In March, we see a religious funerary rite for a loyal canine, Manfred. In October the cremation of feline familiar Mephisto, captured on film, through the small cremation viewing hole. July was the birth month of Zeena's friend, the multi talented musician John Murphy; her stark portrait taken shortly before his untimely death. To all the aforementioned Zeena performed traditional Tibetan Buddhist death rites. These and all the other months are visual reminders on the constant, unpredictable and uncontrollable cycles of life and death.
This calendar is printed on fine art quality Premium Paper suitable for cropping and framing after use.

Four New Shirt Designs by Zeena: 2 Illustrations from 'Demons of the Flesh: The Complete Guide to Left-Hand Path Sex Magic' and 2 illustrations from 'The Manson File: Myth & Reality of an Outlaw Shaman.' PLUS: New embroidered Radio Werewolf Caps in 4 colors including camo.
Two of Zeena's illustrations from her book 'Demons of the Flesh: The Complete Guide to Left-Hand Path Sex Magic', co-authored by Nikolas Schreck. The first is Dakshineswar - Kali and Shiva. In the original publication, all illustrations were printed in black and white. Now for the first time, this vibrantly colored piece is presented in its original form for this shirt.
The second is 'The Contending of Hours and Seth', depicted in classical ancient Egyptian art style.
For mature audiences and collectors; probably not suitable for work :)
From 'The Manson File: Myth & Reality of an Outlaw Shaman' is 'You don't see the light.' - one of nine installments in Zeena's photo montage/mixed media suite entitled, "God Bless Charles Manson" from 2009. The entire collection was originally published as chapter plates in the 2011 expanded editions of 'The Manson File: Myth and Reality of an Outlaw Shaman' (English and French editions), authored by Nikolas Schreck. The whole suite can be seen at this link http://www.zeena.eu/index.php?option=com_content&view=article&id=86&Itemid=88
For the ZEENA Art apparel collection, only two of the original nine images have been selected.
The second one is: 'To Remain Silent.' and features a quote by Ezra Pound that Zeena found fitting to the conditions of both animals and humans who are on death row.
Anyone who would like to request one of the other images from Zeena's original series can special order from email@example.com for the same price.

NOW BACK IN STOCK: Designed by HEINZFELLER NILEISIST as a companion piece to the 84 page book-zine The Zaum of Zeena, by the same publisher, this t-shirt was first presented at the LA Art Book Fair last year and can be purchased on our site HERE!!! Sizes in S, M, L & XL.
FRANK HAINES: “I designed this shirt of Zeena as The High Priestess of Seth (which she is).
This is the first authorized Zeena shirt to exist (there have been a bunch of bootlegs) with proceeds actually going to her.
A more detailed description of the shirt as follows:
'It's a magical talisman combining all the symbolism necessary to foster blissful union of the initiate's inner male-female erotic-war deity energies represented by Seth And His secret consort Inanna and presided over by their High Priestess in this era, Zeena.
The human mind is always at war with itself because the inner masculine-feminine polarities are not united but divided. As a result, the inner conflicts translate to outer destructive behavior and actions. Donning this article of clothing should be regarded as a ritual homage to the wearer's yet-to-be indestructible, non-dual state of perfect peace and spiritual completion
(Š-L-M ). A reminder that Liberation and Enlightenment comes when opposing forces become one.
For those not well versed in tantric practices, Gnosticism, ancient mythology and Magical Theurgy, it's also just a damn cool design to have in your collection!'
